As noted by Lou Dobbs before he was forced out of CNN, the Obama administration stands behind CIFTA, the Inter-American Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms. Obama and crew are pushing this treaty under the pretense it will disarm drug cartels and criminals.
Every aspect of the treaty, however, introduces major required gun controls, most of which will affect average citizens and nullify the Second Amendment.
In 2009, Obama told Mexican President Felipe Calderon he would do everything in his power to get the U.S. Senate to pass the treaty. Under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, international legal obligations are superior rank to national law. If the CIFTA treaty is ratified, and not having defined the exceptions to its many requirements within our Constitution, it would usurp U.S. sovereignty and open the door to additional legislation to support its application in U.S. law.
