Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-On June 3, President Barack Obama will sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

The ATT passed in the U.N. General Assembly by a vote of 153-4 on April 2.

This treaty is ostensibly aimed at putting an end to gun trafficking across international boundaries, and both Breitbart News and the NRA have argued that it will eventually require an international gun registry in order to be enforceable.

The ATT also provides the executive branch of our government with broad powers for controlling which guns do and don't come into the country, and includes ambiguous language that a gun-control-friendly administration can use to its advantage.

Even though Obama will sign this treaty, it is not enforceable in the U.S. until the Senate ratifies it by a two-thirds majority.

For the time being, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) has pushed through an amendment opposing the treaty. However, Obama's signature will open the door for the Senate to reconsider a resolution of ratification at a future date.

    GREETINGS ALL! I WOULD THINK THAT WE ALL WANT SOME LEEL OF GUN CONTROL/SOME DANGEROUS PEOPLE CONTROL?

    Obama has no right to sign anything that involves the United States of America unless he has the votes of all the people behind him. Especially where it concerns our rights.

    You better believe that any law and/or any treaty that restricts any of our gun rights, either explicitly or implicitly is a step in the wrong direction toward gun control. That is the way the liberals get in, one baby step at a time. Down with the Small Arms Treaty. It’s in all our best interests to kill this treaty so contact your senator – it will take 67 votes to ratify it.
