On Wednesday, the Jeff Davis Police Jury unanimously agreed to adopt a resolution asking Sen. Mary Landrieu to oppose the “Gun Law” with the United Nations.
The gun law that the police jury refered to is the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The ATT was adopted by the United Nations with the United States’ support in April 2013, after seven years of dipolomacy and negotiations. It is an effort to regulate international trade in conventional weapons, meaning everything from the sale of small arms, to tanks, fighter planes, and battleships across international borders.
