    Based on what? And why would the United States sign such an agreement that required us to disarm our populous?

    It's already required that massive records be kept. Most private citizens don't buy and sell internationally: particularly in any amount that anyone would notice. We're talking about trade security here. Should 238U just go through "if it fits is ships"? It's easy, "if you want to ship a tank to The Sudan, you gotta fill out these papers first".

    That has nothing to do with II Amendment, nor does it any way restrict any law abiding American from sending a pistol to uncle Danny, or buyin' one online in Poland. If someone's gonna buy enough material to fit out a platoon, then he can afford the fees. If you can't afford the fees, you shouldn't be doin it. If you wanna play, you haffta pay.

    That's what the Germans said back in the 30's. Look how that turned out for them!

    I say we jump all over the slightest threat to our liberties like a duck on a june-bug. Because, "this ain't no bog deal", is exactly what people said before the Commies took over in Russia and the Nazis took over in Germany; the Commies in Southest Asia; the list goes on. I would rather attack these strategies when it's just matter of fussin' rather than having to go to the cartridge box.

    One would think you would go ahead and post a link to confirm that for us...jus' sayin'.

    once the proposed treaty is actually written & finished, we can then review & analyze it.

    On the "Small Arms" definition, I believe the contemporary understanding in most of the world is a weapon that can be carried and operated by one person.
    Americans can only purchase American made weaponry, now...thanks to the Libbo pushed anti-friggin-gun laws. Where you been?!?

    We can't buy FN-FAL's, that are actually made in Belgium. We can't by HK's that are actually made in Germany.

    ah the idiotic 18 USC 922(c) so I own a Russian AK 103 with an american made stock, pistol grip, hammer, disconnector and trigger.

    or the MAADI AK 47 I had was ILLEGAL if I put a Bulgarian Magazine in it-it had to have a US Made magazine (so I put a TAPCO stock and forearm on it). that is the sort of IDIOCY that we have courtesy of MORONS in public office
