The Philippines signs the UN Arms Trade Treaty

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines has signed a treaty at the United Nations (UN) Headquarters that aims to regulate the international trade in conventional arms.

“The Philippines signed the [arms trade treaty] ATT to fulfill our country’s commitment to promoting international peace and security. The proliferation of conventional arms has contributed to violence and instability in many parts of the world including the Philippines and there is a need to address this serious concern,” Ambassador Libran Cabactulan said.

Cabactulan, Permanent Representative of the Philippines to the United Nations, signed the Treaty on behalf of the Philippine Government. This makes the Philippines as the first country in Southeast Asia to do so.

UN Arms Deal Talks End Without Deal

UNITED NATIONS - UN negotiations to establish the first international treaty on the multibillion-dollar arms trade ended without a deal on Friday, with some diplomats blaming the United States for the deadlock.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon said he was "disappointed" that member states failed to clinch an agreement after several years of preparatory work and four weeks of negotiations, calling it a "setback."

But he vowed "steadfast" commitment to obtaining a "robust" arms trade treaty, noting that countries had agreed to pursue negotiations.

"There is already considerable common ground and states can build on the hard work that has been done during these negotiations," he added.

Deny it an environment in which it can thrive, by spreading a grass fertilizer and weed killer mix from your home and garden store, and it somehow finds its way to your neighbor's grass.

NRA: Great UN Debate

Posted below are videos (in 4 parts) of the NRA UN Gun Debate which took place last October 12, 2004   in England between Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice-President of the National Rifle Association (NRA), and Rebecca Peters, head of the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA).

It is very clear from the debate that IANSA is after the imposition of a total worldwide gun ban; they (IANSA) are against civilian ownership of guns and they wish to see all of us disarmed. This left leaning organization is clealry a threat to our freedom and democratic way of life. Conspiring with the United Nations, supported by powerful governments, organizations and individuals, they wish to establish a new world order and impose their socialistic idelogies on all of us.

The International Effort to Ban Guns

All firearms owners and enthusiasts should watch this 9 minute video about the international effort to ban guns. It is US-focused but the points also apply to the Philippines. Remember, despite claims from the anti-gun groups, banning guns will not make the world safer for the average person. It will only make a safer world for tyrannical governments and for criminals.
