Kerry Signs International Arms Trade Treaty
(UNITED NATIONS) -- Secretary of State John Kerry signed the International Arms Trade Treaty Wednesday at United Nations. The treaty took more than a month to negotiate and would regulate the international trade of conventional weapons to curb illegal arms and ammunition trafficking to organized crime, terrorists and militias. The treaty also states that it will not interfere with a country’s domestic gun laws, the right to bear arms or ban the export of any specific type of weapon. It also cannot harm a country’s legitimate right to self-defense.
