“REMEMBER A TREATY BYPASSES THE CONSTITUTION. It would render the second amendment meaningless.”

Not sure this is totally correct. While true that the process could happen as outlined, I don’t believe that puts the issue beyond the scope of the courts, nor beyond the Constitution.

No doubt the fine legal minds here on FR will enlighten us.

It is correct, that is why I posted it.

A treaty would circumvent the constitution.

Back in the cold war days, Kissinger discussed it as a means of global governance to bypass the constitution and american voters.

Please see my posts at 8 and 14. There may be indirect ways to use treaty arrangements to harm weapons logistics, but it is settled law that no branch of our government may extend its own power to a point where it directly infringes on constitutionally guaranteed individual rights. It is fearmongering and misdirection for Morris to say otherwise, not to mention a nice little profit center for him also. We need to focus, IMHO, on the local battles. That’s where this whole thing will be won or lost.
