It's an attack on her constitutional rights -- Second Amendment is constantly under attack we're looking for a global gun control.
Limitations are you -- meet them when you're the strongest player at the table in the world when -- the strongest defender.
Love freedom and an individual rights you don't put yourself in the position to relinquish that role we.
All know that that's not right that's protected well in the United States.
You aren't trade treaty it's about stopping weapons -- into the wrong hands internationally.
Well this UN arms treaty is really raising some eyebrows in gun control gun rights advocates are fearing that it.
Is really going to impinge on their Second Amendment Rights.
A basically a draft of this is being negotiated at the United Nations and it's meant to stop listen trading conventional weapons.
A number a list of weapons but what does it mean for gun control here in the US we're back with the panel Tucker are -- legitimate concerns as this thing is being negotiated.
About the Second Amendment here.
Well they're legitimate -- site as a non constitutional scholar and a contract and speak to second and precisely but I can't say that any arms control.
New treaty in which Iran has a leadership role.
Ludicrous almost prime -- I would say I do think not to deflate this but you know the one effective conservative lobby in Washington.
Is the and -- -- think of all I'm sorry to say -- but it's true I've watched for twenty years you know taxes abortion family issues growth of government foreign policy and if it hits or misses from the conservative side.
But the protection of the Second Amendment is in trying.
Thanks to work of the NRA and I don't think there's any chance I bet my house with a sloppy ratified by the senate and it goes it does not get American -- You wouldn't be ratified the votes wouldn't be there Liz and plus it's easy it true that -- the constitution.
Trumps some international treaty but why -- the administration so anxious to sign -- this.
It's not totally clear what's going to happen going forward because it's kind of unusual timing that this should happen to be coming up right after -- or shootings -- suddenly gun control as an issue has been.
Brought back to the forefront of the national discussion not that anyone thinks -- -- -- control laws are going to be passing US but it hadn't discussed at all for a long time and and just when the topic comes up again.
It's just kind of ironic that.
That's also -- this -- happens to be negotiated.
There's this weird I mean it's the sentiment among.
That the NRA I think to some extent has been pushing that President Obama.
But this is you know in favor of stronger gun control measures and has this plan to kind of the pass all these things once he gets into his second term so far President Obama has done nothing on -- -- called fact.
Gun control advocates are very very unhappy with what the president has done during his first term in office and even in the wake of -- -- -- The statements coming out of the White House were.
Incredibly measured in basically saying yes we don't think that the assault weapons ban will.
And had any -- isn't coming back and than we would like to work with existing laws so there's.
There's no indication that this president has some of grand scheme to get the new gun control pitchers threw.
It got domestically -- -- -- -- But like all these other treaties that we have pursued that liberals are.
Intent on -- worldwide universal arms control.
Trees on chemical biological nuclear proliferation treaties there is a worthless or they're in negative.
And the reason is available only a single effect.
On the good guys in the civilized countries who signed it they will abide divide -- you don't have to to worry about those kinds of countries anyway.
The ones you worry about other rogue states who signed -- even don't trying to.
And break the rules willingly -- impunity we see how that happens -- nuclear weapons -- Iran and North Korea.
Trash to the treaty over and over again.
It doesn't have any effect the only only affect it has is in restricting the civilized.
The good guys in the world and look at them as Tucker you mentioned the Iranians are now one of the fifteen principal regional.
Countries involved in this this is Iran that ships weapons to Hezbollah to Hamas to Islamic Jihad.
To the bad guys in Afghanistan or killing our soldiers every day and who now -- ship -- plane loads a weapons which go to Syria.
Under the pretense of being cut flowers.
Does anybody have any.
He even in clean -- or ideas -- just gonna have any effect on what Iran does.
You treaties are useless all of Hollywood do we stick inspectors and our planes are trains and our ships and we know nothing about illegal illicit weapons.
From bad guys to of the bad guys in the world.
-- Tucker quickly this is kind of like the perfect storm for conservatives.
Gun control and the United Nations it it really is that the moment when you wake up screaming and -- and I and I would just say.
I am convinced -- that President Obama given.
A different political climate in which will be possible to pass gun control -- does anyone -- there.
