The Senate, NRA and Obama Administration....Who makes it out?

There is now a measure of gun control that the Senate and the NRA are in agreement on where they stand. Both are far against the Obama Administration. What could this be?

Well, amazingly it has to do with the U.N. and one of it's most recent decisions. Simply put, they have enacted a treaty regulating the multibillion-dollar international arms trade. Now it makes sense, right? The fact that the Obama Administration would agree to this.

On the Senate's hand, they have already made an addition to the budget proposal in order to prevent the US from participating with the Treaty. Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi has already stated that an action from the President on this, such as signing the treaty, would be pointless because the Senate won't ratify it.

This isn't to control the domestic use of weapons but it doesn't require establishing national regulations in regards to arms trades.

This is not something new and the U.N. has been working hard at making the treaty work for everyone. The main goal is an attempt to make it harder for terrorists, insurgents and many others to get their hands on the weapons. Would it work?
