Unfortunately, there has been an argument going on around the world for nearly two centuries of using disarmament as an approach to peace. The disarmament theorist's proposals would deprive nations of anything to fight with. Franklin Roosevelt was a proponent of "Fourth Freedom," in terms of a "world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor - anywhere in the world." A rather Utopian, but simple minded thought. Men will have weapons, even if they are nothing more than rocks and spears and no government will ever stop that. The fact that the US is even considering entering into the UN Gun Conntrol Treaty is indicative of the naivete' of our government and is an overt attempt to disarm the American society. Once that is accomplished, we will be slaves to the government. An unarmed society can not fight back against a corrupt government consequently, the answer is to confiscate all weapons, slingshots, hunting knives, pea shooters, nail files and all rocks over pebble size. That will keep the rabble down and under foot. With the rabble beaten down, what is left? An international police force or army to control the world? Who will dictate to the world? (to get Biblical, it sounds like an opening for the Anti-Christ to me). If our elected officials do vote for this treaty, it will be time to tuck our heads between our legs and kiss our rear ends goodbye. Oh, by the way, I just sold my guns so they don't need to knock on my door.
