This is what the selling out of the Second Amendment looks like, as Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty this morning.
As he signed the document, Kerry called the treaty a “significant step” in addressing illegal gun sales, while claiming it would also protect gun rights.
“This is about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists and rogue actors. This is about reducing the risk of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes. This is about keeping Americans safe and keeping America strong,” he said. “This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom. In fact, the treaty recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.”
This treaty does not apparently include weapons provided by the Obama Adminstration to Mexican drug cartels, Libyan terrorists, or Syrian “freedom fighters” aligned with al Qaeda.
