OK, stumbled upon this doing some research, thought it interesting (kinda scary too) although not as bad as I had imagined.
realize that most of this is referring to military weaponry and NBC threats, landmines, etc... so not all that related to our fight here in the US, but it does have a section on small arms.
WHILE NUCLEAR WEAPONS THREATEN us with mass
destruction, on a cumulative basis conventional
weapons wreak tremendous death and destruction
every day in conflicts across the globe. It is,
therefore, vital to encourage responsible conduct
in conventional weapons transfers. We must also
explore ways to lessen the pressure on States to
engage in conventional weaponry build-ups, while
safeguarding the legitimate right to self-defence of
all Member States.
just wanted to share for those who have not seen this document yet.
sorry, not that exciting...
