    I couldn't find anyting about the Small Arms Treaty but went to the UN's website and found the Office of Disarmamant Affairs. Looking thru the report I came across this How to form SWAL Legislation (small arms/light weapons) wit some of the objectives lised as

    Prohibition of unrestricted civilian possession of small arsm;
    Total prohibition of civilain possession and use of all ight weapons and automatic rifles, semi-auto rifles and machine guns
    regulation and centralised registration of all civilian-owned small arms
    provisions for effective storage and use of civilian-held firearms, including competency testing of prospective owners
    monitoring and auditing of licenses held and restriction of the number of firearms that may be owned by indididuals
    prohibtions on pawning or pledging of small arms

    While this is not releted to what the OP is stating it is important to understand what the UN sees as a perfect state and the legislation it would like to pushed to individual countries. I think recent SC decisions obviously make most of this impossible for gun control advocates but I could see the licensing, testing and storage issues being pushed out.

    It doesn't matter if she signs a treaty. A treaty must be advised and consented to by 2/3 of the Senate. The President can negotiate but can't enter into a treaty without the Senate's approval.

    Doesn't even matter if the Senate consents by 2/3.
