#459 Arms Treaty & Kansas Abortion, Eugenic Apology

When “Sovereignty” Means Brutality In front of a cheering crowd at the National Rifle Association, President Trump announced the U.S. is withdrawing from the U.N. arms trade treaty: “we will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone. We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your second amendment freedom.” Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of the U.S. state of Kansas declared in Hodes v.
