Those in a panic over the expected loss of 2nd Amendment rights should the UN Small Arms Treaty be adopted need to understand two very important facts:
1) the Treaty has no chance of garnering the 2/3rds vote necessary for senate approval; and
2) a real UN sponsored threat to gun rights in the US and globally does exist, going under the acronym of ISACS, International Small Arms Control Standards.
The UN has been actively working to disarm private individuals and a fair number of nations for thirty years. From its inception in 1982 to the current United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, the organization promotes not only nuclear disarmament, but also and perhaps most especially disarmament efforts in the area of conventional weapons, especially land mines and small arms (1)
And 3 decades of effort have resulted in a program which hopes to impose international standards on virtually everything having to do with the types of weapons owned by some 130 million American citizens. For in its Working Outline, ISACS means to create and make mandatory:

Our erstwhile masters could care less about that. To them, it's all a joke. There is only one way they can be stopped.

Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
The UN (and many in our government, including our “leader”) don’t care about the details of how we are supposed to ratify a treaty under the US Constitution. They base their statements on what they call “international norms”.
To paraphrase Eli Wallach (I think!?), “Constitution? What constitution? We don’t NEED no stinkin’ constitution!” Founders spinning at the speed of light!
