The National Rifle Association has made killing the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty its top priority, and Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., is leading the fight. Last week he sent a letter signed by 44 other senators to the White House that warned “our firearm freedoms are not negotiable.” The treaty, which would need a two-thirds majority to pass the Senate, aims to bring some international standards to the trading of guns and ammunition. “Sen. Moran is a true champion of our freedom,” said Chris Cox, the NRA’s chief lobbyist. “We are grateful for his leadership and his tenacious efforts on this issue, as well as the 44 other senators who agree with the NRA’s refusal to compromise on our constitutional freedoms.”
