The Arms Trade Treaty Doesn’t Care About Your Guns
I’ve got a post up at UN Dispatch on the Arms Trade Treaty and how it won’t take your guns away, regardless of what Larry “Chicken Little” Bell wants you to believe. And hey, you’ll even be able to keep buying guns! Unless you’re buying them from shady companies in Iran, in which case, you have bigger problems than the ATT. Or if you’re trying to equip your army of child soldiers. That’ll be a little harder in the future, maybe. Just fair warning.
Anyway, give it a read and lemme know your thoughts. I’m still mulling over the value of the ATT and the potential pitfalls it’ll face, so expect more from me on this over the next year.
[also, apologies for the light post volume lately, not that you’re surprised. no excuses besides life getting in the way of writing. gotta get that Caitlin in here more often…]
