UN Small Arms Conference Homes In On Gun Owners

New York - Work continues apace on the United Nations Small Arms Agreement, an instrument that would add the U.S. to a growing list of nations that don't allow their citizens gun ownership.

Word is that the loose-knit coalition of more than 500 non-governmental organizations known as the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) has raised millions in donations to propagate the notion that guns spell disaster for peoples' freedoms. Both Japan and the UK have contributed heavily.

Asked one commonwealth country's representative, "How the hell do you get rid of a UN bureaucrat?"

There is definitely no remedy at the polls for that venue. Voters control the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. Government and would ultimately have to approve an alteration of the U.S. Constitution that would disallow gun ownership. Control of sales under a liberal interpretation of the Commerce Clause is another story.
