With the U.N. gun ban treaty being signed, will our president sign the bill to ratify it?

It would be a political slam-dunk, and end once and for all the gun control debate. Or is it just another political third rail?

I think you're confusing UN Resolutions with American Laws.
They're not the same things.
But, yeah, something definitely needs to be done.
But before the President can do anything AT ALL, Congress must first pass a Bill.
And Congress is notorious for not doing a G.D. thing.

What is the gun ban treaty about?

It is the global banishment of all small arms ownership, granting only standing military the right to any weapons. That is as simple as I can make it.

Wrong

Boo the way you described it says that a country COULD ban all weapons. Although lots of countries already do that. But I doubt that it will cause a problem. The way I understand it is that it gives a country the OPTION of getting the UN to help ban the guns. Am I right more or less?

Nope. It's to regulate international gun sales. Has nothing to do with domestic.

The treaty prohibits countries that ratify it from exporting conventional weapons if they violate arms embargoes, or if they promote acts of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes, or if they could be used in attacks against civilians or schools and hospitals.

Countries must also evaluate whether the weapons would be used by terrorists or organized crime or would undermine peace and security. They must take measures to prevent the weapons from being diverted to the black market.

The treaty covers battle tanks, armored combat vehicles, large-caliber artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles and missile launchers, and small arms and light weapons.

Enforcement is left up to the nations that ratify it. The pact requires these countries to assist each other in investigating and prosecuting violations.
Secretary of State John Kerry called it a "strong, effective and implementable" treaty and stressed that it applies only to international deals and "reaffirms the sovereign right of any state to regulate arms within its territory."

And you believe that tripe from Kerry, more garbage from progressives nothing more.
Report as
No, it's actual fact. For that matter it's based mostly on US law AND following it is voluntary.
It's just another mountain out of a molehill to fire people up

Isn't it strange how you progressives don't state it is a disarmament treaty, that omission alone tells me you support an agenda and not our constitution.

Education and facts seem to be the bane of conspiracy fans. If they can't keep control of people through ignorance and fear, they have nothing. Just learn the facts. Leave the scare tactics out of it.
