Surgeon General Vivek Murthy just declared “gun violence” a public health emergency. He wants “assault weapons” and magazines holding more than ten bullets banned.

Fortunately, for those of us committed to the principle of self-defense and the unalienable, God-given right to “own and bear arms,” our Constitution provides a bulwark against the government’s seizure of such arms.

But Dr. Murthy’s declaration follows the adoption of a new treaty that could have profound implications for gun owners and other Americans. According to constitutional attorney Michael Farris, it would require the the United States to change its laws in order to create a “focal point” to comply with the World Health Organization’s directives. And WHO’s Director General considers gun violence to be a “public health emergency of international concern.”

The U.S. Senate must consider and reject this WHO treaty amending its International Health Regulations.

This is Frank Gaffney.
