" I don't see a threat. "
Remember you said that when the SWAT team is at your door asking for your guns. The worse threats are the ones we do not see.

As already mentioned, treaties must be ratified by the Senate:
Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, includes the Treaty Clause, which empowers the President of the United States to propose and chiefly negotiate agreements between the United States and other countries, which become treaties between the United States and other countries after the advice and consent of a supermajority of the United States Senate.
Notice the phrase "advice and consent".
What one has to be weary of is that this only requires the Senate, and not the House of Representatives, and only 2/3rd of those Senators present have to agree. Watch for a time where the majority of senators present are Democrats and these alleged treaties are presented. Be ready to launch suit in the Supreme Court.
This is actually alot harder than you think when it comes to topics as volatile as gun control. I don't think it would ever be possible to get 2/3 of the Senate to go with this issue. It's would be political suicide to vote for this and they would know it. Once they are kicked out of office then next Congress would just repeal the treaty so I don't see a threat.

the constitution has been changed 27 times since it was first written. it's called an amendment. it is only a right because it was written into law.
your post also fails big time because the original constitution didn't have a right to bear arms. it was changed to include that "right".
so much for "rights". they can be changed and altered anytime congress wants. and if want to challenge that, you better use the supreme court.
actually, you'll end up making a good thread on ats: swat team storms ats members house, riddle him with bullets, confiscate firearm anyways.
