[quote:Anonymous Coward 47039989:MV8yMzY0MDUwXzQwNDIyMzc2X0VERkE0NDg=] From the article: [b]"Despite Kerry’s pending signature, don’t panic just yet. The treaty must also be ratified by the Senate, which is unlikely to happen in the immediate future. In fact, in March, the Senate voted to keep the US out of the arms treaty by a vote of 53-46. Treaties require a 2/3 majority vote by the Senate in order to be ratified, however, unlike regular bills, treaties do not have to be reintroduced for each session of Congress. This means the treaty could sit in committee until the Senate is more likely to pass it after future elections."[/b] [/quote]
The Associated Press is reporting that Secretary of State John Kerry will sign the United Nations Arms Treaty on Wednesday this week.
It is feared and predicted by many gun rights groups and advocates that the treaty, if ratified, could open up the US gun market to international regulation.
