Time magazine has published the transcript of President Barrack Obama’s recent speech to the United Nations. The following quote says a lot:
“I’m criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions,” he said. “But I am convinced that in the long run, giving up some freedom of action—not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to international rules over the long term—enhances our security.”
It’s easy to guess which right he’s most willing to surrender to, say, global powerhouse Liechtenstein. It’s also a reminder that the work NRA/ILA performs on the international scene—fighting gun registration mandates and outright bans—is critical to ensuring the sacrifices of those who died to gain those freedoms is never forgotten.
