So why did John Effing Kerry sign a treaty he knew was dead

in the Senate?  This is why:
Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.
All that "Hey, the Senate won't pass it so what're you worried about?" noise?  Show this to the people saying it.

And yeah, it would be in direct conflict with the Constitution; anyone think that'll bother this administration?  This Justice Department?
