Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement urging President Obama not to sign the UN small arms treaty:

"I urge President Obama not to sign the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which threatens the fundamental Second Amendment rights of American gun owners.  The ATT, which was adopted by unelected representatives at the United Nations, would place onerous reporting requirements on businesses including record keeping of end users, leading to an international gun registry.  It could also hinder Americans' ability to import certain arms and make it difficult for the U.S. to support allies, such as Israel."
Congressman McCaul has sent multiple letters to the Obama Administration opposing the treaty. He is an original cosponsor of H.Con.Res. 23, which calls on the President to oppose the ATT and the Senate not to ratify it.
