Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Discusses Dangers of U.N. Arms Trade Treaty [AUDIO]
On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott spoke with Chad Hasty about the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.
The United Nations Arms Trade Treaty recently passed the U.N. and is now on its way to being signed by President Obama. Abbott said this treaty is very dangerous for the U.S. because it is a "back-door" way for the Obama administration to go around the Constitution regulate guns using the U.N. He also warned that it may not be just the 2nd Amendment at risk, but eventually, all of our constitutional rights could be at risk if this treaty should pass.
If some of your listeners may not care too much about their 2nd Amendment rights, by golly, they should care about all of their constitutional rights...If the Obama administration can give the U.N. authority to regulate your 2nd Amendment rights, the Obama administration can give the U.N. the authority to regulate all of your constitutional rights. That's taking the country in the wrong direction.
If the President signs the treaty, which Abbott predicts he will, the next step will be for Senate to ratify the treaty. Abbott said that at the moment, a majority of the Senate is against it, but if the treat should pass the Senate, he will use a lawsuit against the U.N as a last resort to keep the treaty from becoming law.
The battle over gun control is also being fought in the U.S. as well. However, Abbott said he intends to take legal action against all of the gun control measures being pushed by the left, including bills for universal background checks and a national registry of gun owners. Abbott says these measure are nothing more than "feel-good bills" and will do absolutely nothing from keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.
