A team of investigative reporters forAmmoland on Tuesday exposed previously unpublished documents showing that the controversial U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), also known as the "small arms treaty," includesgun control for private "small arms and light weapons" as U.S. gun owners feared.
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.
At issue is a section of the treaty titled "Scope." In a list under the main section, the treaty states that "covered items" include "small arms and light weapons." This section of the original document can be found here.
