Does anyone know of what happened to the automatic MP-5 .9mms the security forces for the UN Headquarters were packing? There was a big brouhaha that the UN-long a bastion of arms control- that they had these AUTOMATIC 30 round sub guns. Wasn't the ATF checking this out? I know that GWB is very pro-UN and that his administration probably pressured the ATF to drop the investigation. After all only Kofi Annan knows how to deploy a fully automatic weapon in the name of peace! Have a nice day.

I don't think most of you understand... the UN, just like an embassy, is sovereign territory of the UN.  It is not US territory, and the ATF has no jurisdiction there.

GWB very pro-UN? I guess if people who are "very pro-UN" tell the UN Arms and Racism Conferences to screw off...
