    Well, they need 67 votes in the Senate to ratify, so its doubtful at this point that will happen.

    2/3rds of Senators present. That can be a number less than 67 and still be legal.

    The 2nd Amendment defines "legitimate purposes" well enough for me, so I'm not that concerned. They can sign treaties 'til they're blue in the face - or dead.

    Maybe the senate can use reconciliation again and force another unpopular law onto the American subjects
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    Nope. There has to be 67 Senators that vote "Yea" not just 2/3rds of those present.

    Here's a link to a document that you should read: United States Constitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It has a few "interesting" tidbits of info.

    Didn't Clinton sign some UN treaty like this but the Senate would not ratify it?

    Since ratification could not get even 50 votes in today's Senate, maybe Obama will issue an "executive order" that the treaty must be honored.
