UN Arms Treaty Reps Approve Veto-Proof Decision Making

posted on August 29, 2015

Representatives from 130 countries gathered in Mexico to push forward the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) have unanimously decided that unanimous agreements will not have to be reached on future gun-control decisions, according to a Breitbart report. This gives the body a veto-proof process for making gun control decisions going forward.

In another action, delegates at the meeting also determined that Geneva will be “the seat of the permanent secretariat for the ATT.”

While Secretary of State John Kerry signed the Arms Trade Treaty back in 2013, the U.S. Senate has never ratified the treaty. Instead, following signing, 50 senators signed a letter to President Obama opposing the treaty. A similar bipartisan letter was signed by 181 U.S. House members and sent to the president.
