The conference on the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty broke down on Friday and will not report a draft treaty to the member nations. However, a U.S. State Department representative said the commission will covene after the November elections.
According to NRA, which is being widely credited for the killing of the UN ATT, it has worked tirelessly for many years to warn American gun owners of United Nations efforts to undermine their constitional rights by putting in place international controls on small arms.
On Friday (July 26), that NRA reported that Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan) gathered of fifty-one signatures on a letter to President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton in a treaty that affects these rights.
The letter emphasized that the treaty will explicitly emphasize our country’s constitutional protection of civilian firearms ownership. Furthermore, it stessed that the treaty should recognize to the legitimacy of lawful activities associated with firearms, including but not limited to the right of self-defense.
In response to two drafts, the White House issued a new response, which was incompatible with Second Amendment rights protected by out Constitution.
The conference will covene after the November elections.
