President Trump withdraws US from UN Arms Trade Treaty

On Friday, April 26, 2019, at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting President Donald Trump announced the United States would be withdrawing from the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.  Former President Barack Obama had signed the Arms Trade Treaty on September 25, 2013.  Through this action, President Trump has effectively stopped the ratification of this treaty by the United States Senate and withdraws our support for the global registry that was a part of this treaty.
