It has taken the global left nearly 2 decades to usher the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) through the friendly confines of the United Nations. Offered for signature in its final form in June, the Treaty, which purports to “establish common international standards for regulating the trade in conventional arms,” really is as dangerous to the right of Americans to keep and bear arms as 2nd Amendment supporters have claimed since the Obama Regime–specifically Hillary Clinton–began the push for the Treaty’s eventual ratification several years ago.
The ATT was deliberately written in broad, general terms throughout most of its text. In this way, the Treaty can generously “reaffirm the sovereign right of any State to regulate and control conventional arms exclusively within its territory, pursuant to its own legal or constitutional system.” Of course, this language from the Preamble mentions nothing about keeping or bearing arms, just regulation and control.
