INTERNATIONAL ATTACK ON GUNS
At The Heritage Foundation website, Ted R. Bromund, Ph.D., and gun-rights lawyer David B. Kopel recently covered the U.N.s chilling progress on the Small Arms 'Programme of Action,' or PoA. The fourth biennial meeting on the PoA took place June 1418, 2010. In 2001, the United Nations created the 'Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat, and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.' The PoA is not a treaty. Rather, it is a mechanism for encouraging voluntary cooperation.
