Obama Administration Pushes To Ratify UN Gun Treaty

posted on September 13, 2016

Secretary of State John Kerry signed it, a confederation of Republican and Democratic senators oppose it, and now President Barack Obama has renewed his vow to see the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty ratified.

However, supporters of Second Amendment rights—such as the National Rifle Association—oppose the treaty because of the crippling effect it could have on the right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms.

The treaty took effect in 2014, but 67 senators need to vote for its passage, and the Obama administration has never submitted it to the Senate. After Kerry signed on, 50 senators immediately sent a letter of concern to the president, stating the treaty was “vague and easily politicized” and warning of a nationwide gun registration.
