A team of investigative reporters for Ammoland on Tuesday exposed previously unpublished documents showing that the controversial U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), also known as the “small arms treaty,” includes gun control for private “small arms and light weapons” as U.S. gun owners feared.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been negotiating the treaty at the United Nations on behalf of the Obama administration.
Clinton had assured the public that the treaty would include language prohibiting the treaty from mandating restrictions on U.S. gun sales. But the documents uncovered by Ammoland indicate otherwise.
