UNITED NATIONS CHARTER

Illegal arms transfers violate UN charter obligations to maintain and strengthen international peace and security, and to achieve international cooperation in problem-solving. An Arms Trade Treaty must ensure no transfer is permitted when there is a clear risk the arms will be used to violate the UN Charter.

The treaty must be all-inclusive.
It must include all weapons, all transfers, and all transactions.

ALL WEAPONS

Armed violence is not caused by only those weapons in the hands of unlawful groups. An Arms Trade Treaty must include all military, security, and police arms, related equipment and ammunition, and training.

ALL TRANSFERS AND TRANSACTIONS

Arms do not only enter borders via direct sales. An Arms Trade Treaty must control the import, export, and re-export of weapons, in addition to temporary transfer and transshipments, loans, gifts, and aid. It must also control those who provide training, transport, storage, and finance.

The treaty must be workable and enforceable.
It must provide guidelines for full, clear implementation.

TRANSPARENCY AND COOPERATION

Arms regulations can’t be made or implemented behind closed doors. An Arms Trade Treaty must be transparent and must include a comprehensive plan for international cooperation and reporting.

COMPLIANCE AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Arms agreements must be enforceable. An Arms Trade Treaty must have a mechanism for monitoring compliance, and must include provisions for dispute settlement and sanctions.

Hit and hammered with multiple comments. I encourage others to do the same. They are outnumbered.

Nailed it.





What Does a Gun Mean To You?





It means I have the tools to carry out our founding Fathers intentions, it means empowerment, it means freedom, it means equality, it means responsibility to do it better than the next guy,





It means protecting these God given rights from all those who would attempt to take these rights away from me!



To the top folks.

Only a coward would hide behind his tool and blame it for the purpose he gives it. Why can't people get it through their thick skulls that inanimate objects cannot be intrinsically evil or good? What matters is the person using it.

From a control arms support page.  They claim to have over 80k signatures in support of their effort.




Not enough... I need cheaper practice ammo.

From the comments:

To me it means:

long stroke gas piston

short stroke gas piston

Browning Camming lockup

Direct impingement

Striker fired

A re-look at roller delayed blowback

Engineering the perfect gas system without sacrifices

Wondering if blowback is a better solution
 


Beautiful.  

Most of the comments used very sound reasoning.  It's very reassuring that logic and common sense still has power.

Thumbs up the solid comments... votes in favor of the video have bumped up a bit and noticed that they must also be thumbing down comments as some of the tops have gone down.

We need to keep drowning them with comments.



One posted back on one of my comments, "
Actually, I totally understand the [ridiculousness] of the 2nd
ammendment, and ammendment that shoudl be as buried as deep as it can
be. Gun control, and plenty of it is EXACTLY what the USA needs. The
sooner the better." I looked them up . . . they are from Canada
