New Risks & Dangers Loom For USA As Arms Trade Treaty Opens For Signature
Washington, DC –(Ammoland.com)- The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) opens for signature on June 3 2013. Well over 30 nations will sign it immediately, and the U.S. has announced it will follow suit.
Once 50 signatories ratify the treaty, implementation begins 90 days later. And implementation will present new risks to the U.S.
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Tom Countryman insists implementation will bring “no change in legislation, policy, or procedures.” That promise will be nearly impossible to keep, since key terms in the treaty have no fixed meaning. As they evolve, the U.S. will change its policies accordingly.
