TWO YEARS LATER, A REPORT SAYS THE U.N.'S PLAN TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF SMALL ARMS in the world is failing dismally.
Oh, darn. ;-)
The report itself -- extremely long and tedious -- can be read here.
According to NPR this morning, the number of small arms worldwide appears to be growing -- with the U.S., the world leader, now having approximately one gun per person and Europe turning out to have a lot more firearms than anyone estimated. The NPR reporter and anchor managed to say all that without typical NPRish tsk-tsking. It must have been tough on the poor things.
