Re: Cornyn on the UN arms treaty

Senator Cornyn is incorrect that the Constitution would not be affected by the Small Arms Treaty. Article VI of the Constitution makes treaties the "supreme law of the land". Essentially, should the Senate ratify the treaty it would become an amendment to the Constitution, changing our rights to keep and bear arms. The government could, and under this administration would, enact restrictions, that would not be constitutional under the 2nd Amendment, in order to "enforce the treaty".
