Research Director at the Independence Institute Dave Kopel talks to Cam Edwards about Mexican President Felipe Calderon's support for American ratification of the Inter-American Convention Against the Illicit Manufacture of and Trafficking in Firearms, abbreviated in Spanish as CIFTA. Kopel explains how CIFTA would damage the rights of American gun owners, such as by prohibiting basic firearm modifications by anyone except holders of a federal firearms license. CIFTA's destructive impact even goes beyond the Second Amendment, as it includes provisions that would undermine free speech and American sovereignty. Originally aired 5/20/2010.
