This week Alex Jones is claiming that Obama has inserted the restrictive UN Arms Trade Treaty into the terms of the TPP trade agreement that he is pushing for so very hard for currently. Supposedly it requires that all nations participating in the TPP agree to abide by the UN's new Arms Trade Treaty. This would negatively affect the importation of firearms and ammo into our country greatly, and could also negatively impact exports by US gun makers, harming our gun industry. Jones claims that Obama is doing this because: 1) The terms of the TPP are being kept totally secret from the Congress and the public at present. So this will allow him to totally blind-side everyone until the very last moment. 2) The treaty is also being "fast-tracked", which means it is not going to go through the normal review process. Again, this will help it to sneak by. 3) He feels that he can win Republican support, since big business wants this new Pacific trade agreement badly, as it will mean a big boast to many corporate profits. 4) By implementing it as part of a trade agreement, he can totally bypass the House, which is far more committed to gun owner rights than the Senate is. Only the Senate will have to vote to approve the treaty. Do you think that there could be any truth to this? Would Obama really go this far, to sidestep the Congress, and get around the House's refusal to consider more gun control? Or is Jones imagining all of this? Could this all be nothing but smoke? Perhaps we need to keep an eye on what Obama is up to in this TPP trade agreement. It concerns me that our government is being so very secretive about it, just like they are doing with the Iran nuclear negotiations. Can we trust Obama to do the right thing? Here in Oregon, I know that Senator Merkley is strongly against the TPP, and plans to oppose it. Senator Wyden, though, has given it his full support. The treaty will have to be approved by the Senate. But the Senate is not as strongly opposed to gun control, as the House currently is. Do we need to start lobbying Wyden to change his mind about TPP?
