UN fails to agree on Arms Trade Treaty, opts for possible vote by the end of the year

Thankfully, it appears that the controversial United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) has been stopped in its tracks, at least for now.

Negotiations have been held between 170 countries from July 2 to July 27, 2012 and yet they were not even able to make a decision on a draft version of the treaty which some say could have threatened the Second Amendment.

However, the treaty, which needed to be adopted by consensus (meaning it would only take one country to veto the deal), has not been shot down completely.

There is still the possibility of further discussions and a draft arms trade treaty very well could be brought before the 193-nation UN General Assembly.

Indeed, some diplomats are clearly confident that this treaty will be put in place, essentially saying it is just a matter of time until it happens.

“We feel that we could have agreed (a treaty). It is disappointing that more time is needed. But an arms-trade treaty is coming – not today – but soon. We’ve taken a big step forward,” said a spokesperson for the British delegation.
