Don't be fooled into thinking that the threat by the recent United Nations Conference on Small Arms and Light Weapons has been eliminated or minimized. The well-paid bureaucrats of the United Nations and numerous non-governmental organizations will relentlessly work to ban the private ownership of firearms worldwide. The Washington Post reported on July 21, 2001: "The European Union has also been seeking an agreement from the United States to back a followup conference on small arms in five years. 'We want to get something to leave the door open, to make this a continuing process that leads to something that is legally binding,' the European diplomat said."
Although ostensibly convened to deal with international trafficking of firearms, the delegate from the Republic of Ireland stated the real purpose of the United Nations Conference on Small Arms and Light Weapons by saying: "States must stop exporting small arms and light weapons to all except other governments. All states must suppress private ownership of small arms and light weapons."
H. Res. 197 would express the sense of the House of Representatives that
1) the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms;
2) any conference or treaty infringing on this right is unconstitutional;
3) the president should reject the anti-gun decrees and proclamations of the United Nations Conference on Small Arms and Light Weapons.
