Day Four of the UN "Small Arms" Conference

Thursday, June 29, 2006

Day four of the UN Small Arms Conference had several highlights. The Swiss Small Arms Survey (an antigun think tank) released its book supporting international regulation of ammunition. Although the U.S. continues to strongly oppose the inclusion of ammunition in any Conference report, several countries insist on pushing the concept. In another development, the President of the Conference appointed three "facilitators" to work on the text of the final report. The so-called facilitators are from Switzerland, Columbia and Japan.
