U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today renewed his opposition to a proposed United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, saying "there is growing bipartisan opposition to this very bad idea."
Alexander announced he will join Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran and a bipartisan group of senators in sending a letter next week to President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reiterating serious concerns about the dangers posed by the United Nations' Arms Trade Treaty.
Alexander said: "I am opposed to any United Nations action that undermines the Second Amendment and threatens our country's sovereignty."
In July of last year, Alexander joined Sen. Moran and a group of 43 other senators in a letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying: "As defenders of the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, we write to express our grave concern about the dangers posed by the United Nations' Arms Trade Treaty. Our country's sovereignty and the constitutional protection of these individual freedoms must not be infringed."
