This is a good first step.
We need to keep up the pressure on the Democrat idiots that would willingly hand over our sovereignty and freedoms to a huge bureaucracy with no accountability to the American people.
“America will not be infringed upon by an organization with little respect for gun rights”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced an amendment today to protect the rights of American gun owners from the effects of a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty in the Senate Appropriations Committee. The Second Amendment Sovereignty Act passed in committee today and would prevent the Obama Administration from negotiating an Arms Trade Treaty that restricts in any way Americans’ Second Amendment rights, or that regulates the domestic manufacture, possession or purchase of firearms and ammunition – therefore restricting the lawful private ownership of firearms in the United States.
“Our freedoms and our country’s sovereignty are in danger of being undermined. This amendment seeks to reinforce that our country’s sovereignty and firearm freedoms will not be infringed upon by an international organization made up of many countries with little respect for gun rights,” Sen. Moran said. “By prohibiting funding for the negotiation of an Arms Trade Treaty, this amendment will help make certain the rights of Americans are protected. America leads the world in export standards to ensure arms are transferred for legitimate purposes and my amendment will make certain that law-abiding Americans are not wrongfully punished.”
“The United Nations must be prevented from interfering with our constitutional freedoms. Equally important, American taxpayers should not be forced to foot the bill for the U.N.’s efforts to restrict our Right to Keep and Bear Arms,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director for NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA would like to thank Senator Moran for his leadership in offering this amendment to protect American freedom.”
