CCRKBA Credits Grassroots for U.S. Decision To Not Sign Arms Treaty


BELLEVUE, Wash., July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today applauds the decision by the United States to not sign the proposed International Arms Trade Treaty, and CCRKBA credits grassroots action for the gun rights victory.

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, who is at the United Nations in New York, said the announcement came Friday morning after a week of intense negotiations.

"I think the grassroots surge by American gun owners against this treaty convinced our government to not sign this document," Gottlieb said. "The proposed treaty, as written, poses serious problems for our gun rights, and the sovereignty of our Second Amendment."

CCRKBA has been active in raising public awareness about the proposed treaty, and Gottlieb said he is proud of members and supporters who "stepped up to the plate" and contacted their U.S. senators.

"This is freedom in action," Gottlieb stated. "We are gratified that so many did so much to protect their Second Amendment rights from an international gun rights grab."

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms ( www.ccrkba.org ) is one of the nation's premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.
