UN Arms Trade Treaty - #4053 - UPDATE: Hillary's End Run on Gun Control - How this Treaty Could Be Implemented Without Senate Ratification, 7,457 Views.

Hillary's End Run On Gun Control - How this Treaty Could be Implemented without the Senate Ratification, 7,457 views.  Based on the Vienna Convention, which provides that when we sign a treaty , until it is rejected by the Senate or renounced by a President, it remains in force binding us by President Obama and Hillary's signatures.  Fifty-Eight Senators have pledged not to ratify this treaty, more than twice the number needed to block it.  On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment. The ATT will set up a global body which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away. The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms. We must fight to stop the US from signing the treaty and, if we fail, block Senate ratification.
