Obama Administration to sign UN arms control treaty in the next few days

Not a surprise, but worth reminding your Senator that you are paying attention when it happens.

Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to sign an arms trade treaty opposed by the Senate and the gun lobby as early as Wednesday, and Republicans aren't happy about it. An Inhofe amendment to the Senate Budget resolution in March blocking the U.S. from joining the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty garnered 53 “yes” votes.

Ratifying a treaty does require a two-thirds supermajority of Senators present, but only 53 no votes is still disappointing.
