    Exclamation Obama Administration to Sign U.N. Arms Trade Treaty "In the Very Near Future"

    As we reported last month, on April 2, the United Nations General Assembly voted 153-4 to pass the Arms Trade Treaty, with the United States voting in favor and several countries abstaining. The vote in the General Assembly pushed the treaty process forward after negotiations twice failed to deliver on the goal of developing the treaty by consensus. The Obama Administration is expected to sign the treaty soon after it is opened for signature on June 3.*

    Our guy Jerry Moran (R-KS) is right on top of this, but one might note that after O'Bummer signs the treaty, it appears that the current Senate will shoot it down.

    BUT, as the NRA notes, any future Senate could ratify it unless a future President withdraws for former signing. If signed by Obama, it will sit as a time bomb that we will have to sit and watch forever.
