Secretary of State John Kerry says that once official translations are available, the U.S. will sign the U.N. Arms Treaty. That doesn’t make it law, but puts it one step closer to a Senate ratification should the dynamic of the Senate ever change. It’s just one more way the Obama administration is governing against the wishes of the American people, and in this case a majority of legislators in both the House and Senate. FoxNews explains it here.
Last week, 130 members of Congress signed a letter to Obama and Kerry urging them to reject the measure for this and other reasons.
“As your review of the treaty continues, we strongly encourage your administration to recognize its textual, inherent and procedural flaws, to uphold our country’s constitutional protections of civilian firearms ownership, and to defend the sovereignty of the United States, and thus to decide not to sign this treaty,” the lawmakers wrote.
