For example, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child covers matters that in the U.S. are the responsibility of the states, localities, and families—not the national government, which is one reason no administration has transmitted it to the Senate.

Absolutely correct.

Unfortunately Congress and the President more and more pass laws those Federalize crimes that should be strictly under the purview of the state.

So don’t expect this Congress and President or future Congresses and Presidents to respect the limits on the Federal government when it come to the Rights of the Child or the 2nd Amendment.

Government will respect the rights of the states or the people only so long as they forced to by the states or the people. For proof of this I will give you Obama Care.

Remember good old Patrick Henry, this is our Government if we are willing to fight for our rights.

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” Patrick Henry.
