Don’t mess with Texas: Attorney General to sue Fed. if Senate approves Arms Trade Treaty
by S.H. Blannelberry
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott vowed on Wednesday to slap the federal government with a lawsuit if the Senate ratifies the United Nation’s controversial Arms Trade Treaty.
In a press release, Abbott argued that the ATT does not trump the Constitution. Moreover, that the Obama administration is heading down a dangerous path, potentially signing away precious liberties protected by the Constitution.
“By signing this treaty, the Obama administration has attempted to subject Americans’ right to bear arms to the oversight of the United Nations. The very reason we fought for independence was to free ourselves from the dictates of leaders in other lands,” Abbott said, who is running for governor in the 2014 GOP primary.
