Something to celebrate!
The United Nations
Arms Trade gun control Treaty failed to get ratified!
The treaty was supposed to be ratified last Friday, July 27, 2012.
But James S. Robbins reports for The Washington Times that talks over the UN Arms Trade Treaty fell apart, effectively killing the agreement.
A pro-treaty legal blog reports that the process seemed to be moving to completion when the United States requested an extension to the time allotted to negotiate the agreement. This opened the door to other countries to begin registering more complex objections, and it soon became clear that reaching agreement within the allowed time frame would be impossible.
The proposed treaty had raised considerable domestic opposition from gun rights advocates in the United States.
Now the treaty has died before it had a chance to become a threat. We dodged the bullet (sorry for the pun!) for now, but the UN still may take up the matter at a later date. Satan Never Sleeps!
See my post, “We are insane if we sign the UN “Arms Trade” gun control treaty,” on how real a threat to our Second Amendment rights the treaty was.
