A true Patriotic American from AUSTIN,TEXAS: Attorney General Greg Abbott today wrote to President Obama urging him not to sign the Arms Trade Treaty passed this morning by the United Nations General Assembly.
Dear Mr. President:
The Arms Trade Treaty agreed to today by the United Nations (UN) is a threat to Americans’ Constitutional liberty. I urge you to reject that treaty. If you sign it, and if the U.S. Senate ratifies the treaty, Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
America is exceptional in part because our Constitution safeguards our individual liberties – including the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment. During your reelection campaign, you consistently claimed to support Second Amendment rights. Yet the day after you won reelection, you announced your support for the Arms Trade Treaty, a UN agreement on firearms restrictions. That treaty:
- Fails to recognize the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms or the right to defend one’s family, person, and property;
- Empowers a new UN bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people of the United States;
