The United Nations recently took a vote against arms dealers selling weapons all over the world to countries that might use them to promote genocide and terrorism on a grand scale. Naturally, the National Rifle Association and its cronies in Congress call this global gun regulation. They see this as an affront to their profits from gun sales, and I guess some Republicans and Democrats see this as an obstacle to their war profiteering.

The NRA keeps good company, doesn’t it? Also against the so-called global gun regulation are Syria, Iran and North Korea. The acronym for these countries together is SINK. Throw in the U.S. and the acronym is SINK US, and that’s exactly what the NRA is trying to do to the United States. Any time we start agreeing with terrorist countries like Syria, Iran and North Korea, we are no better than they are. We need to keep the U.S. out of it and let the NRA sink with them.
