UN anti-gun conference falls flat...

According to Dave Kopel at The Volokh Conspiracy, the UN conference on "small arms" is ending without a final treaty and without any follow-up conferences scheduled... primarily because the US ambassador to the UN refused to back down.

As he puts it, the outcome would have been very different had Bush not been in office.  A Democratic presidential appointee would almost certainly not have had the spine to resist.

I got it from the Geek.
