    The gun ban was about importing certain types of weapons, and I don't think the Senate ratified it.

    Either way the UN can't do squat, especially, without US funding/support. This is yet another futile attempt of the tail wagging the dog.

    And really, AliHaji? Like the UN is going to overrule the US citizenry? The only reason they have that policy in the first place is because we ****ing told them to. They're our bitches not the other way around.

    That's basically the underlying principle of neorealism, which is the only theory of intentional relations that is taken seriously and operated upon.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Careful with these type of sentiments!

    "Oh U.N. you got a problem with that? You know what you should do? You should sanction me. Sanction me with your army. Oh! Wait a minute! You don't have an army! So I guess that means you need to shut the **** up. That's what I would do if I didn't have an army, I would shut the **** up."

    Since the legalization of pot rape and murder have expanded by 14,000,000,000% just as predicted in the documentary "Reefer Madness". God help us.

    So if a country won't follow its own laws, why should it expect others to follow theirs? I wonder how the UN feels about the Dutch and their drug laws.

    I'm a fan of a country enforcing its laws but if they aren't going to be enforced, then they should be repealed.

    Two things need to be done. Marijuana has to be removed from the laws listing it as a narcotic. If that can't be done, withdraw from the treaty.

    Or, we just do what Holland did which is more or less what the states that have lifted prohibition. Allow for small use and prosecute large trafficking cases.
