In the case of this treaty, you'd have the right to purchase whatever guns your mind wants. You don't have the right to become a gun runner and sell those guns in Ethiopia. Reading past the initial shock value of the articles we post is a great idea apdst. You should try it.

    There are concerns about the weapons trade among UN members.
    They're talking about it.
    There is no Treaty.

    It's the chicken little's constant squawking about the dems gonna take your guns that I've been hearing for the last umpteen years and ramped up since the attempt on President Reagan.

    Arms Trade Treaty

    The global trade in conventional weapons – from warships and battle tanks to fighter jets and machine guns – remains poorly regulated. No set of internationally agreed standards exist to ensure that arms are only transferred for appropriate use.

    Many governments have voiced concern about the absence of globally agreed rules for all States to guide their decisions on arms transfers. That is why they have started negotiating an Arms Trade Treaty.


    United Nations Disarmament - Towards an Arms Trade Treaty
    The first committee meeting about it was in July of 2010, there are more meetings scheduled for 2012.



    Coincidentally I bought a new gun yesterday - first new one in years. No, it wasn't to stockpile out of fear, it was because of good 'ol capitalism. Thanks to the crass commercialism of the season, it was ON SALE and I saved $70. YEAH!!

    Do you honestly believe the government is going to start breaking down people's doors to take their lawful weapons? Are you completely paranoid or just full of empty rhetoric?

I remember you coulld buy a gun quite easily, but you had to sign your name in a book if you bought ammo. That was back in about 1970. That is no longer a requirement. Glad they got rid of that stupid requirement.

    What did he do to expand gun owners' rights? Did he unilaterally expand the Bill of Rights and I missed it?

Or pistols being bought again at lower Christmas sales prices for self-defense because the Republican Party is reducing pay to law enforcement officers making those agencies less likely to prevent crime.

    I'm sure those things have nothing to do with it at all. Instead let's blame the Kenyan Muslim Fascist Socialist Marxist Anti-Christ.
    You make a lot of leaps in logic for a guy that considers himself smarter than the class.

    Where does he leap?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The increase in gun sales is this year over last year. Did all these fathers suddenly decide to buy their kids guns this year that didn't last year ?

    Or maybe guns are mysteriously on sale this year and not last year ???

    Maybe you missed the word "logic" in his post, but that wouldn't be the first time for you.
