NRA: Global Threat

Posted on the 10 July 2011 by Mikeb302000
Gunloonery contributing to instability worldwide:
A new study finds the global authorized trade in small arms, light weapons, and their ammunition is worth nearly $7.1 billion a year. In its annual report, the independent think tank, the Geneva Forum, also examines the serious impact small arms proliferation is having upon three so-called fragile states-Madagascar, Ivory Coast and Haiti.
Now, the typical gunloon response will be along the lines of 'Who cares what those furriners do? Let 'em kill each other!'
The problem, of course, is that problems elsewhere quite often wind up as our problems.  Particularly when instability in a region infringes on our allies and national security concerns.
