Reuters is reporting that Secretary of State John Kerry plans to sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty tomorrow, September 25, 2013.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, in a move that puts the Obama administration at odds with the powerful American gun lobby, will sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty regulating the $70 billion international conventional arms business, diplomats said on Tuesday.
A senior State Department official said President Barack Obama’s administration would notify the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and Kerry would sign the treaty on Wednesday on the sidelines of the annual U.N. General Assembly in New York.
Now while this is certainly NOT a good thing, keep in mind that after the treaty is signed it requiresÂ ratification by the Senate, where it will have to pass by a two-thirds vote, which almost assuredly will not happen. Even so, the assault on the Second Amendment continues.
