At the Gun Rights Policy Conference, we were briefed that the UN has not given up on dis-arming America. My original post is here. It seems that seven countries are calling for a new round of negotiations. From this piece,
Brig. Gen. Mujahid Alam, a retired Pakistani officer with the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Congo, said "free and unabated trafficking of weapons, in particular small arms," in the Great Lakes region of central Africa is one of the major causes fueling the war in Congo, which has claimed 5 million lives since 1998.
He predicted that agreement on an Arms Trade Treaty will not happen quickly and suggested that the U.N. and the international community consider a pilot project in the Great Lakes region to test possible treaty provisions to curb illegal weapons transfers.
This area is already covered by a UN backed treaty called "The Nairobi Protocol for the Prevention, Control, and Reduction of Small Arms and Light Weapons in the Great Lakes Region and the Horn of Africa."
Hmmm? It seems the first one is not working, let's try harder. I suspect that those 'illegal' weapons are going to people who are fighting for their very lives against genocide and ethnic cleansing. The UN's idea that the government should be the only ones to protect you doesn't take into account what if it's the government itself that is out to get you. The UN fails to consider the innocent lives lost because of gun control. The biggest threat we face is that of registration of our guns. DON"T LET IT HAPPEN. Remember, what the President signs, must be ratified by the Senate. Put pressure on yours to reject this should it come to pass. If not, remember Joe's Jews in the Attic test.
