Thanks to the National Rifle Association and other pro—gun rights groups around the world, the UN's five—year effort to essentially establish a global gun control scheme has gone nowhere. The UN Small Arms Conference ended Friday, July 7, with no 'formal conclusions or recommendations.' According to the NRA's report on the conference,
No recommendations on ammunition, civilian possession or future UN meetings, or for that matter any other subjects, were adopted. The failure of this five—year program to impact the legitimate firearms industry, and the 2nd Amendment rights of U.S. citizens was total.
But as the report notes, anti—gun NGOs and other liberal groups plan on coming back before the UN General Assembly this fall peddling more of the same dreck.
We must be ever vigilant when it comes to our freedoms.
