Okay as we all know Glen-Rhodes has made it known to all that he is an enemy of states being able to purchase arms. Now he has submitted his draft "Arms Trade Convention".
I thought it would be a great idea to start working on a repeal for it now just in case it ever passed. I am hoping that won't happen and if there is an counter-campaign I'd love to help.
Anyway without further adieu.
|Repeal Arms Trade Convention|
The World Assembly,
Believing that the goal of reducing the likeliness of war is laudable;
Convinced that the Arms Trade Convention does not in fact reduce the the likeliness of war;
Dismayed by the broadness of the legislation;
Concerned that including in the definition of arms: “data-processing and communications systems, “ would prevent the trade in electronics, communications devices and computers;
Further Concerned that including in the definition of arms: “Dual-use items that can be used for military, security and police purposes, when such use can be anticipated.” would prevent the trade in any item that could, conceivable by a reasonable person, be used as a weapon, including but not limited to such items as flashlights, pencils, hammers, and screwdrivers;
Understanding that arms being inanimate objects lack the ability to discriminate between combatants and civilians;
Understanding that the risk of hijack, however small, is present in the transport of any commodity, the resolution prohibits the transport of weapons both internationally and within the territories of member states;
Repeals <Insert Resolution number here> “Arms Trade Convention”.
