Acting Asst. Sec. Susan Thornton and EAP team en route to her nomination hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee!
There’s a shady conference happening in New York this week that every American should know about. The United Nations panel on small arms in convening to discuss its gun control agenda, which many fear will spread into America.
According to TheBlaze, “The Program of Action to Prevent, Combat, and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All its Aspects, known as POA, began its fifth biennial meeting Monday and will continue until Friday.”
The POA’s website focuses on the illicit arms trade, claiming that “Most present-day conflicts are fought with small arms and light weapons.” It says that gangs, organized crime syndicates, and terrorists prefer these arms when carrying out violent acts.
“Illicit small arms have a negative impact on security, contribute to the displacement of civilians, facilitate the violation of human rights and hamper social and economic development.”
Since 2005, the program has pressed for its member nations to develop a system to track the flow of small arms over international borders under the International Tracing Initiative.
“If weapons can be traced back to their last legal owner, they need to have been marked, and a record should be kept. In the ITI, governments have committed to do just that,” the program states.
gangs are getting their weapons from govts. Fast and furious was and is a good example.
bet the un wont mention that
I agree. Too bad they cannot trace weapons used by terrorist back to the country they came from. I am sure the USA would top the list as a supplier. Not exactly small arms but appropriate. http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2014/06/another-shoe-drops-in-beng...
Took the words right out of my mouth. They are going after us, the citizens, when it's governments who are supplying the weapons.
If the UN is worried about small arms threatening security, then their investigation should start with eric a**hole holder!
Yes, and we have a government in place that is going to take our guns and leave our borders wide open to illegals, criminals, terrorists and who knows what else...................does anyone think that this government represents the people or the nation.............it is the enemy.............do not surrender your guns!!!
In my opinion if they dont like the way this country is run then they can pack up their tents and get the fuck out of my country and dont come back and take the liberals with you I dont hear the UN raggin on Switzerland about their guns they can quit raggin on us about ours and dont forget Obama when you finally get kicked out of this country
Obama and Valery invited them in! Cuomo let them use NY! WHEN will those New Yorkers kick that wop out? New York and California are anti-American! Get all the guns and Ammo you can while you can! Go to gun shows! Maybe the Muslim Brotherhood will use this meeting as another 9/11! Just saying!
