"Even in societies not beset by civil war, the easy availability of small arms has in many cases contributed to violence and political instability," said Annan "Controlling that easy availability is a prerequisite for a successful peace-building process." ---
I guess the massacre in Congo is the fault of the guns which just rise up by themselves and start killing people, that's why UN failed.. (/sarcasm)
That is why they think it's more important to hold a gun control conference, than to stop the massacre in Congo.
And of course the last thing Kofi cares about is our 2nd Amendment. I just hope that our Congress will remember that they work for the American People, not the UN.
Any TRT members and Freepers ready to go to the Big Apple again?

(We live in "interesting times". Indeed.)
Why are we still in this corrupt, global government wanna be? Get us out of the UN NOW.
Great idea, World WarIII is underway and the UN says to disarm. What a bunch of morons.

I notice the UN is NOT
calling for the disarmament of all the Third World tyrannies that comprise it's membership.
Thanks UN, but no thanks. You're one of the reasons why I keep and bear arms.

Track "officially held guns";
Wonder who is tracking the unlicensed, unregistered, fully automatic MP5s that Kofi's bodyguards walk around NYC with.

No, it is a prerequisite for a successful elimination of National Sovereignty

Ah, the UN Stalinists are at it again, and I see that their usual tactics are at work. Disarming the world will "help feed" starving people, they say. Disarming the world and concentrating military power in the hands of nation states will "decrease violence" against civilians.
No. Their tactics are transparent. They're interested in disarming civilians so that they can control them; they're interested in disarming civilian populations so that liberal democracies will be brought to heel by destroying law and order.
