Good grief. I guess if it works at home it will work anywhere on the planet.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry warning him about the United States becoming a signatory nation to the United Nations' Arms Trade Treaty.
“Sec. Kerry and President Obama are at it again,” said Inhofe. “As we saw in 2009 with cap-in-trade in Copenhagen, Sec. Kerry and President Obama are being dishonest by telling the United Nations that we’ll be a part of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. This treaty is already dead in the water in the Senate, and they know it. On March 23, I was able to force the last vote on the Senate Budget resolution to be on my amendment to block the U.S. from joining the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. Fifty-three Senators from both parties went on the record and voted against the treaty, meaning the President does not have the majority for ratification. The Administration is wasting precious time trying to sign away our laws to the global community and unelected U.N. bureaucrats.”
