"...On the surface, it appears to be a treaty among nations to reduce the illegal trafficking of small military arms and light weapons in order to curb civil strife in some countries by establishing general guidelines for the manufacture and import and export and possession of those firearms."

"As one might expect of a man so brilliant, Thomas Jefferson had the perfect answer to modern politicians itchy to disarm the ordinary citizen."

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

"This is an entry in his Commonplace Book, dated sometime between 1774 and 1776."

"Can anyone argue against his logic? ..."

"Tomorrow, the UN world conference on the small-arms and light-weapons trade begins in New York, a chance for world governments to stop the uncontrolled flow of weapons around the world."

"Every year, small arms kill more people than the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A survey just released by the Control Arms Campaign shows that almost one in three people across six selected countries - UK, Canada, South Africa, Brazil, Guatemala and India - has been affected by gun crime in the last five years. In countries such as South Africa and Brazil, that figure rises to more than half."

"As summer heats up and guns proliferate on the streets of the cities of Massachusetts, a recent appeals court ruling restricting 'stop-and-frisk' procedures is frustrating police and upsetting neighborhood leaders but encouraging some criminologists and defense attorneys for what it says about the rights of a person who finds himself walking the sidewalks of a high-crime area."

"New Bedford Chief of Police Ronald Teachman told The Standard-Times that the state Court of Appeals' 2-1 ruling in a Dorchester case is a 'horrible decision,' and for now, while a further appeal runs its course, city police will be 'instructed to do their job as they're doing it.'"

"Shootings, most of them fatal, by hand-held guns and other small arms are the leading cause of non-natural deaths in South Africa, far in excess of road accident fatalities. Every day newspapers carry grisly accounts of four-year-olds accidentally killing someone with their father’s gun, of husbands shooting wives and of bank robbers storming shopping malls with AK-47 assault rifles."

"A recent report by Oxfam estimates that more than 100,000 South Africans died in gun-related violence in the first 10 years of their country’s post-1994 democratic transition."

Of course, it’s still true that man, and woman, does not live by food alone, so a full bar will also be available."

"Not everyone would agree."

"Ricker is executive director of the American Hunters and Shooters Association, an organization that stepped under the microscope this past week at the Outdoor Writers Association of America annual conference in Lake Charles, La."
