He needs 67 votes in the Senate to pass a treaty. But even some Democrats wouldn't touch anything having to do with gun control with a 10 ft pole.
I knew, I KNEW, Barry would eventually try to sign some POS UN treaty and then claim that he doesn't need the Senate to ratify it. I KNEW

Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges - Cicero
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
