Rafael Cruz: Obama Wants to 'Take Our God And Our Guns' To 'Impose A Dictatorship Upon Us'

In a 2012 campaign speech for his son, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Rafael Cruz warned that President Obama was pushing for gun violence prevention laws in order to “impose a dictatorship upon us.”

“They are trying to take our God and our guns,” he said in the speech, which was uploaded to YouTube in July 2012. “And if they do that, then they can impose a dictatorship upon us.”

Cruz also pushed the conspiracy theory that the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty would “impose a ban on guns.”
