UN Global Arms Treaty
Ready to be Rejoined

By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton. Sept 3, 2021

The Biden administration is signaling that they are strongly considering reentering the United Nations Small Arms Treaty that former President Trump pulled out of and that critics assert will lead to an international gun registry.

The Acting Deputy Director of the Office of Conventional Arms Threat Reduction at the U.S. Department of State, William Malzahn, told the United Nations that the current administration is supporting and getting behind the Arms Trade Treaty.

"I have come from Washington, D.C., this week to take the floor on the agenda item Treaty Universalization to underscore the continuing commitment of the United States to responsible international trade in conventional arms," Malzahn proclaimed at the 7th Conference of States Parties to the Arms Trade Treaty.

"The United States has long supported strong and effective national controls on the international transfer of conventional arms, and the Arms Trade Treaty is an important tool [for] promoting those controls internationally," he remarked according to an NRA-ILA transcript. .....

Americans were warned about the Arms Trade Treaty in 2013, stating, "This treaty threatens individual firearm ownership with an invasive registration scheme [and is full of regulations and requirements that are] blatant attacks on the constitutional rights of every law-abiding American."
