The Supreme Court can use a soap-opera case to stop federal overreach

If the Supreme Court concludes that a treaty can be used to prosecute Americans, regardless of their constitutional rights, the ramifications could be alarming were these treaties to be ratified:

●Nothing would stop the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty from being used to vanquish Americans’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

●Under the Convention on the Law of the Sea, U.S. businesses could be subject to the decisions of the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea based in Hamburg, Germany, rather than the rulings of American courts.

●The Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities could allow decisions on how to educate a child with disabilities to be made by foreign tribunals rather than by the child’s parents.
