In January 2015, Ginny Simone sat down with John Bolton to discuss the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty and President Barack Obama. Bolton has been a key figure in the Republican Party since being named to the Reagan administration in the 1980s. He later served in several roles in the George W. Bush administration, including as the State Department's chief diplomat on arms control and as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Bolton speaks of his grave concern regarding our current president. "This is a president who acts without any sense of executive restraint," he says. "The Constitution is an inconvenience to him." The Obama administration signed the Arms Trade Treaty in 2014 and it awaits ratification from the Senate. But as Bolton notes, Obama could make an end-run around Congress and use an executive order to get it signed. "The real agenda has always been domestic gun control in America."
