Comment: Treaties must be made "under the Authority of the United States"

(See in situ)


Treaties must be made "under the Authority of the United States"

in order for them to be the Supreme Law of the Land.

Since the Authority of the United States by virtue of the limitations of the Second Article of Amendment does not extend to infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms, no treaty which does so is valid, and may safely be ignored by all officers of the United States, or any of them.

In short, a treaty cannot be "unconstitutional" and it cannot amend the Constitution or abrogate any of its provisions.

If enforcing any of this as a regular law is unconstitutional, it still is, even as part of a treaty.
