Quote:Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that the Obama administration would sign a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, despite bipartisan resistance in Congress from members concerned it could lead to new gun control measures in the U.S.

"We look forward to signing it as soon as the process of conforming the official translations is completed satisfactorily," he said. Kerry called the treaty "an important contribution to efforts to stem the illicit trade in conventional weapons, which fuels conflict, empowers violent extremists, and contributes to violations of human rights."

The treaty would require countries that ratify it to establish national regulations to control the transfer of conventional arms and components and to regulate arms brokers, but it will not explicitly control the domestic use of weapons in any country.

Still, gun-rights supporters on Capitol Hill warn the treaty could be used as the basis for additional gun regulations inside the U.S. and have threatened not to ratify.

Last week, 130 members of Congress signed a letter to Obama and Kerry urging them to reject the measure for this and other reasons.

The President signing something doesn't commit us to it.

Any treaty must be ratified by Congress to make it binding.

Not to worry...

it is hard one to get my head around, as to why people would be concerned in the slightest that they could ban guns? they clearly never will, cause it would start a civil war..

in Australia we had a gun massacre in Tasmania and in my city, and they just banned guns on a large scale.. and im sure a few people were upset but no one hardly had guns anyway, as its the opposite to America here.. we dont have a gun culture or think its our right to have guns..

I guess the point here is his priorities are diametrically opposed to that of the general population in the states.
I guess his ratings are not low enough with all the other scandals on the table and the ACA looking like an accident waiting to happen.
