Quote of the day–Oscar Arias Sanchez

This collection is an enlightening and comprehensive look at one of our planet’s gravest problems. Until we regulate the trade in light weapons, arms dealers, just like drug traffickers and the slave traders, will continue to reap benefits at the cost of human lives in all countries of the world.

It is only through tackling war, militarism and weapons of all sizes, on all levels and from all sides, that we will be able to realize our vision of a world in which extreme poverty and senseless violence are nothing but sad memories of the past.

Oscar Arias Sanchez
Former President of Costa Rica and 1987 Nobel Peace Laureate
From a review of the book: LIGHT WEAPONS AND INTERNATIONAL SECURITY.
[Many in international society wish to completely infringe the inalienable right to keep and bear arms on a worldwide basis and implement a Utopian socialistic society. This has been tried many times in the last century at the cost of hundreds of millions of lives. Be on your guard for the next attempts.–Joe]
