‘The point is just to try to reduce legitimate gun ownership’

Secretary of State John Kerry once again signed the United Nations Arms Treaty on Wednesday, a move that supporters say will help stop weapons from getting into the hands of criminals and terrorists worldwide but critics contend is is a backdoor assault on law-abiding gun owners.

The treaty would require nations to conduct a detailed registration of all guns. The issue is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate, but one of the leading experts on guns says even if the agreement is only ratified in other countries, it can still work to erode gun ownership in America.

“The point of this is just to try to reduce legitimate gun ownership in other countries. Eventually it has some feedback effect in the United States. If Canadians are much less likely to own guns, gun control activists will point to them and say, ‘Look how outlandish we are in the United States,’” said John Lott, an economist who serves as president of the Crime Prevention Research Center.

Lott is also the author of well-known books on guns, including “More Guns, Less Crime” and “The Bias Against Guns.” He says the stated purpose of the U.N. treaty sounds pretty harmless but the devil is in the details.
