No.

And here is a quote from an NBC news source:

For starters, the treaty, if it is ever agreed upon, only governs the international sale of specific kinds of small arms. The UN charter forbids interfering in the laws of member states. The US Constitution takes precedence over any treaty, and any treaty must be ratified by the US Senate.

Full story here.

As of now, no such treaty exists. Nothing is agreed upon. When such a treaty does exist, it will still have to be ratified by the US Senate before the Untied States will consider it binding.

It will take more than the President's signature to make such a treaty enforcable.
