In an apparent last-ditch effort to push through some form of gun control, the Obama administration transmitted the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty to the Senate for ratification last week.

Approved by the U.N. in April 2013, and signed by Secretary of State John Kerry the following Sept., the Arms Trade Treaty seeks to place tighter restrictions on global arms dealing.

“The Treaty is designed to regulate the international trade in conventional arms — including small arms, tanks, combat aircraft, and warships — and to reduce the risk that international arms transfers will be used to commit atrocities, without impeding the legitimate arms trade,” said Obama in a press release.

The funny thing is that the Arms Trade Treaty is DOA due to over 50 senators having already expressed stern opposition to the deal, citing concerns in several letters to the president over its efficacy to stop bad actors from obtaining arms, its overly broad and ambiguous language, and its capacity to threaten the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.
