It would seem that after a massacre like the one in Colorado, our political leaders would want fewer guns on the streets. But this is assuming that they have public safety as one of their primary interests. Unfortunately, the gun lobby has enough money to make our senators overlook a nation that is begging for a way to get guns off the street, which is why you end up with something like this.
A bipartisan group of 51 Senators announced Thursday that they will oppose a draft treaty regulating international weapons trade if it does not sufficiently protect Second Amendment rights. The treaty is designed to make the nation safer by keeping guns and ammunition out of the hands of terrorists, but Senators are concerned that the expansion on gun control outweighs its benefits.
