On Friday, April 26, 2019, at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting President Donald Trump announced the United States would be withdrawing from the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Former President Barack Obama had signed the Arms Trade Treaty on September 25, 2013. Through this action, President Trump has effectively stopped the ratification of this treaty by the United States Senate and withdraws our support for the global registry that was a part of this treaty.
A few weeks ago I made the article titled “Is It Reasonable? The National Firearms Act”. At the end of that article I made the comment that I might make a follow-up article going over some changes that I’d make to the NFA if we couldn’t get it abolished.
Firearm regulations haven’t worked in the past and they haven’t worked today. The National Firearms Act of 1934 was designed to be the “end all, be all” to “gun violence”. It heavily restricted several kinds of firearms under the illusion that criminals would follow further laws; surprise! They didn’t.
Garden State gun owners fight back against fallacious, anti-gun regime that describes self-protection as useless and handguns as too dangerous for law-abiding Americans to operate.
