Hillary Clinton And The UN Arms Trade Treaty Rumor

Like everyone else I get a lot of emails forwarded to me, from the truthful to crazy.  The Hillary Clinton and the UN Arms Trade Treaty hoax email has been circulating for too long.  The NRA came out and declared this an hoax email.  If anyone sends you this email let them know it is a hoax and to stop forwarding it around!  There are to many other legitimate issues we can be hitting the liberals with to be concentrating on a hoax email.

Do everyone a favor and independently verify the facts of that next email before you press forward.

From the NRA-ILA.

Hillary Clinton And The UN Arms Trade Treaty Rumor
Friday, May 28, 2010 We continue to receive numerous inquiries regarding UN international treaties, and their impact on our Second Amendment rights.  The latest rumor making its way around the Internet claims that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton actually signed a UN small arms treaty.

Contrary to this widely circulated e-mail, Hillary Clinton has not signed any small arms treaty.  She could not have done so, in fact, because no such treaty has yet been negotiated.

As we noted in an update from last November, the UN Arms Trade Treaty will be drafted between now and 2012, and even if signed, would not take effect in the U.S. until it was ratified by the Senate.

Please rest assured that, as we said in November, NRA will be actively involved in this process and will oppose any treaty that would attempt to impose limits on our Second Amendment rights.  In the meantime, we urge gun owners to follow this issue in NRA’s magazines and NRA-ILA’s Grassroots Alerts.  We also urge gun owners not to circulate misinformation on this issue.
