Abbott warns arms treaty could spur Texas to sue

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, no stranger to suing the federal government since President Barack Obama took office, repeated his warning Wednesday that U.S. ratification of a United Nations arms treaty would bring “swift legal action” from Texas.

Secretary of State John Kerry signed the Arms Trade Treaty on Wednesday, saying it would improve world safety and limit terrorist access to weapons.

But Abbott said the treaty, if ratified by the U.S. Senate, would endanger the right to keep and bear arms as protected by the U.S. Constitution.

“By signing this treaty, the Obama administration has attempted to subject Americans’ right to bear arms to the oversight of the United Nations. The very reason we fought for independence was to free ourselves from the dictates of leaders in other lands,” Abbott said.
