Comments on: Why the world needs an arms treaty http://blogs.reuters.com/bernddebusmann/2012/07/09/why-the-world-needs-an-arms-treaty/ Tue, 31 Mar 2015 01:18:20 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: paulsageordie http://blogs.reuters.com/bernddebusmann/2012/07/09/why-the-world-needs-an-arms-treaty/#comment-2771 Sat, 14 Jul 2012 10:26:22 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/bernddebusmann/?p=546#comment-2771 I believe that as in the U.K the United States have laws that makethe consumption, possession and trafficking of Narcotics illegal. Obviously that means that there are no drug users, drug gangs or drugs trade in either country.
The U.N should stick to what it does best, tell the world that uncontrolled Arms trading to repressive governments is a BAD thing and leave it at that. The 7,000 men and young boys murdered in Srebenica while the long haired hippies of the Dutch U.N stood by reading their “Terms of Engagement” would surely agree. I am happy to announce that I have made it illegal for beautiful women to discriminate against fat, bald, poor old men but I have a feeling that like many such well intentioned edicts it may be impossible to enforce. When will Politicians return to the “Art of the Possible”?

Our rule of law is what makes this country great because it allows us to stay free. We need to force the Senate to stand against this treaty! Blast email every Senator here: www.1cp.net/promo/ac

Nuclear bombs don’t kill people, people kill people. So, to make the world safe, let’s give everybody nuclear weapons and fight fire with fire.

Now I’m invovled because this changes our Constitutional rights ,our second admendment rights…..It seems that only officials and heads of states sell weapons to foreign goverments or drug dealers….how about enforcing the laws that are existing now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is a tube with a thick end where the explosion occurs and an open end where the musket ball emerges. ask the ghosts of the tens of thousands that British volley fire took down during the Napoleonic wars whetner they are effective. Check out the deaths during the genocide in Rwanda/Burundi and see what proportion were the result of machete or burning. It is the man or woman behind the weapon that kills in the same way that there are few “Rogue” dogs only bad trainer/owners the abscence of industrially produced small arms will only impair the efficeincy of our permanent mutual slaughter. The weopons are not the cause.

Over and over again, one side plays fair and the other sides never had any intention of following the treaty.

One side is castigated for any minor violation, while the other sides are not even monitored.

One side falls behind in the arms race, the other sides acquire more and more weapons.

One side is very stupid and on the road to extinction.

Repeat over and over again: debusmann is not very smart, debusmann is not very smart, debusmann is not very smart.

The facts no one wants to read.

Censorship is evil.

Sounds like there’s a problem with the enforcement of these laws. Why add more laws when you cant enforce the laws already in place? Last time I was at the grocery store I dont remember waiting 5 day for the feds to run any background checks for bananas, but ill ask next time i go. Oh and I would be willing to bet that the majority of the half million citizens who die each year from gun violence would have a much better chance of surviving if they were armed. We will always have criminals and we will always have guns. You must fight fire with fire. Maybe you should go get a copy of the declaration of independence and read it. While your at it also read the second amendment of the United States Constitution.

I mean… all those hundreds of weapons we knowingly sold to drug dealers and just let walk away.. that would not be allowed? .. and how would this effect the common person in american and gun ownership?
