The worlds biggest arms dealing countries are the U.S., China, Russia, the U.K. and France. They are also the five permanent members of the UN security council.

And that is exactly why American gun and ammo makers, and their mouthpiece, the NRA, are keeping people so stirred up about the gun trade treaty. It would cut into their profits.

Thank God for that! Someone is going to make money selling arms to third world savages. It might as well be us!

Yep. They would lose billions for no reason. The savages would still get the arms on the black market.

Been an NRA Life member since 1957. If I win the lottery, they get a one million ($1,000,000) donation from me.

That treaty has got to be stopped at any cost.

I have been an NRA member for 50 years. We were the hated enemy of the far left in the 1960s. I am glad to see they still hate us.

I consider it a badge of honor to be truly hated by radical anti-Americans, whether they are the socialist extreme left or the fringe right neo Nazis..

Since the government overpays for a lot of stuff could I get them to buy my mosin for a thousand?

Obama would most likely want to trade. Obama has hundreds of those government toilets they paid a $1,000 dollars for. Dealing with Obama you are going to get Sh&t on any way.

OTOH, in 1921, and aghain in 1946 there were a helluva lot of widows and orphans in Germany because of the old Mosin 91!

Those SFB's do not have access to enough money to even think about buying my Mosins. I respect my Mosins too much to let them be bought by a bunch of knee-pad wearing boneheads.

Yes, money is going to change hands either way. The buyers may as well put money into our hands. On that note, I think we should invest more in steel cartridge technology so we can arm those that Russia would and figure out how to do it in a cost-effective manner to remain competitive.

That treaty is already DOA, anyway. Russia and China will never agree to it and neither should we.

I think it's high time the Europeans or Asians started shooting at each other again. I'm sure the CIA can help out. It's their area of expertise. It shouldn't be that difficult to start something with someone. Sometimes you need a "just because" war, ya know.
