The UN Is Back in the Gun Banning Business?
It is encouraging to anyone who believes in freedom that the thugs who preen and strut in the over-expensive and blood-drenched halls of the United Nations are falling out amongst themselves when it comes to this treaty. Hopefully it will languish once more as it has before. The UN is the last organization that ought to be involved in this sort of treaty given its history of corruption and violence.
Gun-banning itself has a history – and not a good one. The more guns that are banned, the more blood is spilled sooner or later, or this is what the past teaches the present. If the government has guns and the "people" have given them up, then the chances are, sooner or later, people will discover they have given up freedom as well.
Stating this is not to encourage gun violence, only to make a historical observation. It is very clear that most of the violence in the world is generated via government not private individuals. A person with a gun is probably not apt to use it; a government with a drone is more than likely to send it up into the sky as a spy or hunter-killer – these days anyway.
