The article discusses the neglect of the arms sales to repressive regimes by the U.S. in light of domestic gun control debates. It examines the United Nations (UN) Arms Trade Treaty and how the U.S. can potentially gain from it. It cites the tendency of the U.S. to care only about arms sales to and from repressive regimes when it is convenient. It explores the treaty as a way to exercise arms control domestically for the U.S. government.
