President Donald Trump promised to take the United States out of an agreement with the United Nations on firearms trading.
The president pledged to “unsign” the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) during his appearance at the National Rifle Association’s convention in Indianapolis. But Trump didn’t stop at just words. In front of a cheering crowd, the president signed a letter to the Senate at the podium before showing his signature to the audience.
While the Senate never officially ratified the treaty, the letter from the president formally requests the chamber to hat the process and return it to the Oval Office — where Trump said he would “dispose” of it. Needless to say, the decision was universally welcomed by the NRA.
“Today in front of 15,000 NRA members, President Trump once again demonstrated his commitment to our Second Amendment freedoms and American Sovereignty,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox said in a press release. “His commitment to un-sign the anti-gun United Nations Arms Trade Treaty that was forced on us by John Kerry and Barrack Obama, gives NRA members one more reason to enthusiastically support his presidency. Donald Trump isn’t afraid to stand on the side of freedom and defend our God-given right to self-defense and we couldn’t be prouder to stand with him.”
The Arms Trade Treaty, shorthanded as ATT, was a multilateral agreement designed to regulate the exchange of conventional weapons between countries. It was made open for signature in 2013. It was signed off by then-State Secretary John Kerry.
This is without a doubt a win for both the Trump Administration and the American people.
