A treaty proposed by the United Nations, with help from Iran, could eventually open records of American gun owners to scrutiny by the international body. The Arms Trade Treaty is being roundly slammed by organizations like the National Rifle Association. NRA President Wayne LaPierre says the last thing American gun owners need is 'an international nanny' requiring a permission slip to own a gun.

LaPierre says the treaty could weaken American sovereignty, according to an interview on Fox News. President of the Montana Shooting Sports Association Gary Marbut says Americans need not worry too much about the proposed treaty, as the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution cannot be overturned through treaty. However, Marbut encourages Montanans to contact their Congressional delegation and ask them to formally oppose the UN Treaty.
