Obama’s Pragmatism Stops U.N. Arms Treaty — for Now
In the end, Barack Obama didn’t have the guts to take the guns … yet.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty was expected to be finalized by member nations on Friday, but on Friday morning, the U.S. representatives announced that America needed more time to consider the treaty.
Almost immediately, Russia and China pulled the plug on their efforts, as well. Those countries were among the primary agitators for this treaty, which seems specifically designed to disarm American citizens. As the two countries historically most interested in destroying the U.S., it’s obvious why they wanted the treaty so badly.
