From the Denver Post:

_Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo has proposed a 2010 ballot measure that would recommend to Colorado’s top elected officials that they oppose gun restrictions.
_

_The Jefferson County Republican said he was prompted to act because the Obama administration has announced its intent to participate in negotiations on an international arms-trade treaty.
_

_The treaty would regulate international trade — not domestic sales — but Tancredo argued Friday that gun owners had a right to be concerned.
_

_”It’s a pretty slippery step to gun confiscation,” he said.
_

_Tancredo conceded his measure is not binding, so even if it did pass, elected officials could vote their own way on gun issues.
_

“But if it passes with a healthy majority, then it’s an excellent, excellent way of sending a message to Congress,” Tancredo said Friday.
