Obama Officials Attend U.N. Small Arms Conference

posted on August 25, 2015

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in September 2013. A month later, 50 U.S. senators signed a letter opposing the treaty. Although the treaty hasn’t been ratified to date, that hasn’t stopped Obama administration officials from traveling to Mexico City for the U.N. Small Arms conference this week.

The event is intended as a kick-off to the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty, which is intended to ultimately usher in global gun registration. So you can bet this presidential administration will be all-too-happy to set into motion any plans or policies that come from the meetings. The end result would spell doom for the Second Amendment.

“This treaty threatens individual firearm ownership with an invasive registration scheme,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director. “These are blatant attacks on the constitutional rights and liberties of every law-abiding American.”

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
