    After a wave of outrage stopped President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from signing the proposed UN Gun Control Treaty (called the UN Arms Trade Treaty) last July, the treaty advocates are back with a new strategy to get it enacted in the US without Senate ratification!

    UN Gun Control Is Back!

    From your link:

    Is the United States a party to the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties?

    No. The United States signed the treaty on April 24, 1970. The U.S. Senate has not given its advice and consent to the treaty. The United States considers many of the provisions of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties to constitute customary international law on the law of treaties.

    Thanks for the info Cowboy but I'm not sure that will be enough to stop Obama. Rule of law didn't stop him from Fast and Furious and the subsequent cover-up (the biggest criminal political scandal in American history), which lead to orders registering gun purchases in the four southern border states and using the ATF to harass gun shops out of business.

    Under an expansion of the civil forfeiture doctrine, Obama has just given the ATF the power to seize your firearms if they choose to, without due process, and even if you are not under investigation. Under Obama’s new decree, if the ATF says they are going to confiscate your firearms, they can.

    In light of what Obama has done without congressional authority it is not inconceivable he will try to do the same with the UN Gun Control Treaty as customary international law.
