United Nations fails to agree landmark arms-trade treaty.......
[link to www.brecorder.com]
Delegations from around the world failed on Friday to agree a landmark UN arms-trade treaty to regulate the more than $60 billion industry, opting for further talks and a possible UN General Assembly vote by the end of the year, diplomats said.

More than 170 countries have spent the past month in New York negotiating a treaty, which needed to be adopted by consensus, so any one country effectively could have vetoed a deal. Instead, no decision was taken on a draft treaty. But this leaves the door open for further talks and a draft arms-trade treaty could be brought to the 193-nation UN General Assembly and adopted with a two-thirds majority vote. Diplomats said there could be a vote by the end of the year.

"We feel that we could have agreed (a treaty). It is disappointing that more time is needed. But an arms-trade treaty is coming - not today - but soon. We've taken a big step forward," said a spokesman for Britain's delegation. One person every minute dies from armed violence around the world, and arms control activists say a convention is needed to prevent illicitly traded guns from pouring into conflict zones and fuelling wars and atrocities.

UN treaties are not worth the paper they're printed on. Rogue nations will disregard them and do what they want anyway.

And this hot mess of a treaty would violate our sovereignty and our constitution.

The UN needs to clean it's own house, namely the blue-helmeted rape gangs of UN soldiers committing atrocities in Africa... before worrying about guns and bullets in other nations.
