While we were busy being distracted by all the non-stories, the MSM present us and the pressures of daily life, it has finally happened. While I'm not a gun holder myself, I never begrudged anyone the right to bear arms legally, as long as they didn't do anything stupid with it.
And just who does U.N. think it is anyway? One of the things we probably should've gotten rid of after the WW11. Hindsight is 20/20 has they say.
UN Small Arms Treaty Passes While Media Sleeps | Alternative
According to the text, Member States renewed their pledge to rid the world of the scourge brought upon it by the illicit manufacture, transfer and circulation of small arms and light weapons, and their excessive accumulation and uncontrolled spread in many parts of the world. They also committed to mobilizing the necessary political will and resources to implement the Programme of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with the aim of achieving clear and tangible results over the next six years, through 2018.
Ahhh yes, the cries of terrorism and drugs and boogey men for the passage of the treaty. This comes from member nations who knowingly promote these kinds of things. Even the United States is now in the midst of a scandal involving gunwalking, known as Fast and Furious, and at least one man arrested has come forward and said that Fast and Furious was all about arming drug cartels in Mexico, never about tracking them.
