Cassidy, Marshall, Colleagues: Biden Administration Must Not Support International Oversight of Americans’ 2nd Amendment Rights

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) joined Senators Roger Marshall (R-KS), Jerry Moran (R-KS), James Inhofe (R-OK), and 33 colleagues in requesting clarification on the Biden Administration’s intention to open U.S. Second Amendment rights to international oversight by rejoining the Arms Trade Treaty, an international agreement that would regulate trade in firearms. “The vague language of the ATT makes American commitments uncertain, the most concerning of which is the lack of protections for lawful gun ownership which threatens the rights afforded to Americans under the Second Amendment,” wrote the Senators . “Under any circumstance, it is inconceivable that the United States would consider subjecting our constitutional right to bear arms to international oversight and interference.” Co-signers of the letter include Senators Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Roger Wicker (R-MS), John Thune (R-SD), John Barrasso (R-WY), James Risch (R-ID), Thom Tillis (R-NC), John Hoeven (R-ND), Rick Scott (R-FL), James Lankford (R-OK), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), John Cornyn (R-TX), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Susan Collins (R-ME), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Steve Daines (R-MT), Mike Crapo (R-ID), John Boozman (R-AR), Todd Young (R-IN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Mike Lee (R-UT), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Mike Braun (R-IN), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Michael Rounds (R-SD), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Pat Toomey (R-PA), John Kennedy (R-LA), Lindsey Graham (R-GA), Roy Blunt (R-MO), and Tim Scott (R-SC).
