Obama’s United Nations backdoor to gun control

John Yoo and John Bolton write for The Wall Street Journal, April 14, 2013

The attempt to advance gun control through the Arms Trade Treaty might surprise average Americans, but not liberals, who have been long frustrated by the Constitution’s limits on government. Gun-control statutes, like any others, have to survive both the House and the Senate, then win presidential approval. It is far easier to advance an agenda through treaties, unwritten international law, and even “norms” delivered by an amorphous “international community.”
