NRA speaks out about UN arms treaty

by American Firearms Review  |  published on November 21, 2012

We’ve been following the post-election resurrection of America’s involvement with the UN small arms treaty. Now the NRA is speaking out to the Daily Caller:

U.S. officials say the treaty will have no effect on domestic gun sales and ownership because it will only apply to weapons exports, but the National Rifle Association isn’t convinced.

“That’s been the claim for years during the first go-around and the short answer is ‘no, we don’t buy it,’” said Andrew Arulanandam, Director of Public Affairs for the NRA, citing Obama’s support for the reenactment of the semi-automatic weapon ban in the second presidential debate as grounds for suspicion.

“We have a Second Amendment right in the U.S. and the NRA will do whatever we can to protect it,” Arulanandam told The Daily Caller. “That includes working with Republicans and Democrats in Congress to make sure that any proposed treaty that includes private ownership of firearms within its scope does not become a reality.”

Killing the treaty, then reviving it was a cynical move on the part of the Obama Administration. The president knew the treaty was unpopular so he buried it until after the election. Let’s hope pro-gun groups will continue to speak out against this potential infringement on our rights.
