Rand Paul: "Anti-American Globalists" Threaten the Constitution

In an e-mail to gun owners, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called for opposition to the United Nation's Arms Trade Treaty.

“I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick,” writes Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul (shown center in photo).

This reporter attended that conference and the senator’s description of the true aim of these “anti-gun globalists” is right on the money.

Specifically, Paul highlights the following mandates of the Arms Trade Treaty:
