Just a few hours after being re-elected, President Obama encouraged the United States to support new United Nations discussions on a global treaty regulating guns and the gun industry. Supporters of the treaty believe the talks collapsed in July due to the campaign and Obama’s fears that Romney could use it against him. Now that the President has four more years in office, the White House is ready for the discussions to begin again.
“While everybody is saying, you know he’s going to compromise. He’s going to get together with the Democrats and the Republicans, he’s going to reach across — the very next morning he was pushing a global ban on guns,” Glenn said.
The Blaze reported that a Washington official said, ““We seek a treaty that contributes to international security by fighting illicit arms trafficking and proliferation, protects the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meets the concerns that we have been articulating throughout.”
“We will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms,” the official added.
Glenn said if there is so much concern in Washington about illicit arms trafficking, maybe we should consider arresting Eric Holder.
“Hey are gun sales going? Have you purchased a gun yet this week? Because may I recommend do it. I don’t know if anybody else is but I’m sure he’s going to be fine,” Glenn said.
