Obama Reversed Policy On Wednesday And Said It Would Back Launching Talks On A Treaty To Regulate Arms Sales.

The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush’s administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

The proposed treaty is opposed by think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, which said last month that it would not restrict the access of “dictators and terrorists” to arms but would be used to reduce the ability of democracies such as Israel to defend their people.

The National Rifle Association has also opposed the treaty.
