Sen. Moran Statement on Status of U.N. Arms Treaty Negotiations
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Jerry Moran (R-KS), the author of S. Con. Res. 7 – the bipartisan resolution which makes clear a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) that undermines Constitutional freedoms of American gun owners will not be ratified by the Senate – released the following statement today on Iran, North Korea and Syria blocking the U.N. ATT last night.

"I have said all along that negotiating the ATT with dictatorships was a bad idea. Last night, Iran, Syria, and North Korea made clear they have no intention of abiding by any such treaty. Therefore, any ATT would only serve to constrain law-abiding democracies like the U.S.," Sen. Moran said. "The most recent collapse of ATT negotiations should serve as a wake-up call to the world’s democracies of the inherent flaws in the U.N. treaty process that puts us on level ground with dictatorships who abuse human rights and arms terrorists."

"In the coming weeks, I anticipate ATT supporters will seek new avenues for treaty adoption, such as the U.N. General Assembly," Sen. Moran continued. "Given the apparent support of the Obama Administration for the ATT, members of the U.S. Senate must continue to make clear that any treaty that violates our Second Amendment freedoms will be an absolute nonstarter for ratification."

BTW - In case anyone is interested when Senator Moran's legislation was voted on last month, Bobby voted against it and Pat voted for it. Once again Bobby has proven that he is not pro-2A.
