Default U..N. Resolution 2117

Cannot verify after looking at Senate records.

UN 2117 is about keeping arms dealers from flooding war zones with weapons. It isn't about private small arms and the resolution is non-binding. In other words, it is something that we can agree with in concept yet none of the "rules" have any enforcement or a requirement to comply.

What it has become is another sounding board for the fear mongers to beat the ignorant yet well armed populous with. Have you even read the resolution? It doesn't seem like it.

Certain guns and ammo just went up in value again.

Not this nonsense again. Non issue. Nobody's taking anyone's guns.

Remington and Smith and Wesson are probably sponsors of the resolution. Nothing creates gun sales and profits better then the false fear that someone might take them away.

More misinformation and people getting worked up over nothing. You're being manipulated by your information sources. Do some research and find out the truth, and once you do think about all the other things that have you all worked up that you might have been misled about.

Just a non-binding resolution feel good resolution at the UN. Even binding resolutions at the UN are considered optional by the member nations. The UN once again demonstrating their expertise at self-parody.

Is any UN resolution binding? The UN is a total drain of taxpayer money.
