Biden aims to sign on to UN’s global gun registration treaty
The Biden administration this week signaled that it is eyeing a United Nations small arms treaty that critics claim will lead to an international gun registration plan — including for individual American gun owners.

Two years after former President Donald Trump withdrew from it, a top arms diplomat at the State Department told the global body that the current administration is swinging behind the Arms Trade Treaty.

Yeah, he can agree to it (IIRC, BHO agreed to it, too), but it requires approval by a 2/3 majority in the Senate before he can sign (ratify) it.

He will most likely try to do it by EO directive.
