For some reason, Secretary of State John Kerry signed an insane United Nations arms treaty aimed at regulating the global arms trade. Yet another meat by-product of the Obama administration's totally schizo foreign policy.
There is doubt that it will pass the Senate where ratification for all treaties must occur. More than 130 members of Congress signed a letter of opposition a couple of months ago.
Republican Tennessee Senator Bob Corker expressed concern about the treaty violating the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The treaty is quite general with non-specific language that prohibits the transfer of conventional weapons if they could be used in attacks on civilians or civilian buildings such as schools and hospitals.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) expressed concern about the treaty on The Blaze Radio Talk Show with Glenn Beck and joked about Senators having their photos taken with Syrian rebels.
