Texas Attorney General Blasts Obama Over UN Arms Trade Treaty

In a letter sent to Barack Obama by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, he blasted the President over his double speak concerning the Second Amendment. Noting that Obama claimed support for the Second Amendment prior to the 2012 elections, but then pointing out that the day following the election he gave his support to the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (UNATT). The Texas AG also demonstrated just why the UNATT should not even be considered by the United States. Should Texas ever secede from the Union, I might just decide to hang my hat there unless South Carolina does the same. Then I’ll stay put.

Here’s Abbott’s letter:

April 2, 2013

Sent via facsimile and U.S. mail

The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington. DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

The Arms Trade Treaty agreed to today by the United Nations (UN) is a threat to Americans’ Constitutional liberty. I urge you to reject that treaty. If you sign it, and if the U.S. Senate ratifies the treaty, Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

America is exceptional in part because our Constitution safeguards our individual liberties — including the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment. During your reelection campaign, you consistently claimed to support Second Amendment rights. Yet the day after you won reelection, you announced your support for the Arms Trade Treaty, a UN agreement on firearms restrictions.

While Obama said that the gun lobby lied about the bills that were defeated yesterday in the Senate, the one really telling lies is Obama himself. He cannot be trusted and he has demonstrated that over and over.

Texas Attorney General Blasts Obama Over UN Arms Trade Treaty

Good for the Texas Atty. Gen., but the whole issue is an exercize in "mental masterbation". Even if Obam signs on to such a travesty, it requires a 2/3 majority in the Senate to ratify and go into effect...and that simply isn't going to happen...EVER!!!
