A United Nations Arms Treaty, Obamacare and the Jobs Act were the hot topics for Senator Jon Tester during his monthly media conference call.
On the UN bill, the senator said it raises second amendment concerns and rights of law-abiding American.
Tester, himself, is a long-time champion of gun rights, informed the President “the Arms Treaty creates too much ambiguity in how Treaty provisions can and will be enforced.” He told the Havre Daily News that, “the treaty covers small arms, light weapons and ammunitions and their inclusion makes the agreement too broad. He also says language in the treaty might force the U.S. to take certain actions even if it withdrew from the treaty in the future.
