On 18 December 2006, the UK Ambassador for Multilateral Arms Control and Disarmament, Mr. John Duncan, formally adopted Resolution 61/89, which called on the Secretary-General of the United Nations to gather the views of UN Member States on the feasibility, scope and draft parameters for a “comprehensive and legally binding instrument establishing common international standards for the importation, export and transfer of conventional weapons” and to submit a report to the General Assembly. 94 states presented their views, which are contained in the 2007 A/62/278 report.  Duncan spoke on behalf of the co-authors (Argentina, Australia, Costa Rica, Finland, France, Japan and Kenya). On behalf of the European Union, Finland stressed its support for the efforts and said: “Every day people are affected every day by the side effects of irresponsible arms transfers… Given that there is currently no internationally binding global instrument to create an agreed legal framework for this activity, the EU welcomes the growing support for a TCA in all regions of the world.  94 states presented their views, which are contained in the 2007 A/62/278 report.  Proponents of anti-gun contracts continue to mislead public opinion and argue that the treaty would not have an impact on U.S. gun owners. It`s a bald lie. The most recent draft contract includes, for example, export/import controls that would require officials in an importing country to collect information about the end user of a firearm, keep the information for 20 years, and provide information to the country from which the weapon was exported. In other words, if you bought a Beretta Shotgun, you would be an “end user” and the U.S. government should keep you registered and inform the Italian government of your purchase.
It`s the registration of weapons. If the United States refuses to collect law-abiding U.S. gun owners, other nations may be forced to ban the export of firearms to the United States Andie n. Andie n. A. At the signing ceremony, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that “the world has decided to finally put an end to the free nature of international arms transfers.” In 2012, states participated in arms transfers worth more than $85 billion, according to the Congressional Research Service.
