UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the first U.N. treaty regulating the multibillion-dollar international arms trade Tuesday, a goal sought for over a decade to try to keep illicit weapons out of the hands of terrorists, insurgent fighters and organized crime.
The resolution adopting the landmark treaty was approved by a vote of 154 to 3 with 23 abstentions. As the numbers appeared on the electronic board, loud cheers filled the assembly chamber.
A group of treaty supporters sought a vote in the 193-member world body after Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked its adoption by consensus at the end of a two-week final negotiating conference last Thursday. The three countries voted “no” on Tuesday’s resolution while Russia and China, both major arms exporters, abstained.
Draft of the treaty:
I have something the UN can kiss!
Phil ?? Me Too. But, they should hear whats in store for ANYONE who comes to get MY Shooters. I might Die. But that's better than being a UN Slave. OR an OBOGUS/LIB/DEM Slave. NEVER GIVE an INCH
we really need the UN to leave this country and never return
Be nice if ' Barry' left with them- you know 'Barry' , he's the Messiah !!!
The United Nations is the largest organization of lowlifes and corruption in the world , NOTHING they do is for anyones benefit except their own .
You can include our present gov't among the low-lifes in the world....How embarrassing it is to have this bunch of stupid idiots agree with the UN on anything. They are so great at their job, example.....look at the mess the world is in !!! The only thing they are united in is in corruption and greed !!! I agree, we should throw them out of our country, along with Obama and his cronies in the gov't !!!! This is the begining of the dissolution of our Constitution....TIME for the second REVOLUTION !!!!
Like everything else the UN involves it self in , this treaty will mean and do nothing . This anemic joke of a world body should just close down and go home to their respective countries
I think all true AMERICANS have some lead for the UN .UN stands for under nothing can we be trusted at all because they don"t recognize the constition , declration of independence or anything else that made our country strong.Now all they strive for is to make us WEAK.Do not give up any GUNS to anyone with out lead first.
which country is going to have its troops physically enforce this new wonderful treaty ?
EVERYONE: you MUST bombarde everyone in Congress to vote NO when this gets to the Senate!! They are trying to also regulate OUR arms here in one-fell-swoop! This will cause GLOBAL GUN REGISTRATION, and must be killed! Obama and Hillary have been working on this for several years, and we MUST squash it NOW!! We will be allowing the UN to tell us what guns we can have, or not! They have no right to demand ANYTHING from us, unless our OWN country says its OK, which Obama is anxious to say "yes" to.
PLEASE, get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US, petty dictators and communists are NOT telling me what to do, I am SOVEREIGN!! The UN can go to HELL!!
