Day Six of the UN "Small Arms" Conference

Monday, July 3, 2006

The UN Small Arms Conference ground into its sixth day with innumerable speeches and very little action. The President of the Conference, Ambassador Kariyawasam, from Sri Lanka, released another draft version of the Conference report. The draft again pushes international regulation of ammunition and again proposes UN meetings on small arms up to and including 2012. After substantial pressure from the NRA, the Conference will not meet tomorrow, July 4!
