U.S. Senators Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and James Inhofe (R-Okla.) announced Sunday that the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty undermines Constitutional freedoms to bear arms and should not be ratified by the Senate.
The U.N. General Assembly passed a vote to ratify a U.N. ATT by majority-rule, as opposed to the original regulation for consensus. Moran, along with cosponsors Baucus and Inhofe, formed S. Con. Res. 7 in response to the U.N. ATT to uphold the second amendment of the U.S. and to protect American gun owners.
“The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty that passed in the General Assembly today would require the United States to implement gun-control legislation as required by the treaty, which could supersede the laws our elected officials have already put into place,” Inhofe said. “Recently, 53 Senators went on the record voting in favor of my amendment to stop the State Department from negotiating this treaty… I will continue to work with my colleagues Sens. Moran, Baucus and others to ensure the American people’s voices are heard and that this treaty is not ratified.”
