U.S. Signs Arms Trade Treaty, But Will The Senate Ratify It?

Secretary of State John Kerry signed the International Arms Trade Treaty meant to stem the flow of weapons that have fueled civil wars and atrocities. Activists hailed the move, saying it could put the U.S. in a better position to lean on Russia to stop arming Bashar al-Assad's regime. But the Obama administration will have a tough time getting the Senate to approve it.
