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 obtained by Breitbart News.

The NRA has vociferously warned that the treaty will mandate that all arms that Americans buy from overseas makers will be tracked. In order to accomplish that, a global gun registry would be created and maintained for at least 10 years if not permanently. Every gun owner would allegedly be listed on that registry.
“This is the first step towards creating a global firearms registry,” the NRA bluntly admonished.
“President Biden wants to give foreign bureaucrats control over the rights of law-abiding Americans, and the NRA will fight it every step of the way,” the gun advocacy group vowed on Twitter.
Malzahn commented that the Biden administration is currently working to review and strengthen the “Conventional Arms Transfer Policy.”

“The new CAT Policy will better frame the intent and priorities of the Biden/Harris administration and formalize the approach of the administration as adopted on arms transfer decisions that have been in effect since President Biden entered the White House in January,” he continued.
“The revised CAT Policy should be finalized shortly and released as a public document. When it is, the United States will then use that policy framework to review specific arms transfer issues, including determining the proper relationship of the United States to the Arms Trade Treaty,” he stated.
The NRA warned Americans 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.”
There has been widespread fear across the nation since Biden took office that Second Amendment rights would be abridged and stripped from Americans. The move by Biden to reenter the Arms Trade Treaty will only exacerbate those fears. Gun sales, FBI background checks, and the purchase of ammunition have skyrocketed since the beginning of the Biden presidency.
Fox News host Tammy Bruce tweeted, “We have no problem gifting $85B worth of earth-shattering weaponry to terrorists but Biden wants Americans on a what will eventually be a gun confiscation list. Run by the leftist bigots at the UN. Because, you know, *we* are the problem.”
A global gun registry does not sit well with Americans:
Government against the people. Very dangerous times.

I recognize the US Constitution as the law of our land. Only authority above it is the Almighty!
Think it’s time to make certain Washington DC recognizes this too!

Treaty‘s have to be ratified in the Senate. If there was ever a time for the legislative branch to wrench power away from the executive it’s now with a feckless duplicitous doddering old man in the WH.
