NEW YORK — Prasad Kariyawasam seems like an unlikely person to receive 5000 letters a day. Sri Lanka's ambassador to the United Nations is a softly spoken diplomat, more likely to avoid controversy than provoke it. But in the past few weeks, his office has been overwhelmed with at least 100,000 letters, mostly from supporters of America's National Rifle Association, who believe that he is trying to take away their guns. How could the Sri Lankan UN ambassador pose a... (

If you happen to be employed at the gun registry in Miramichi you would like to know whether you will have a job three months from now. For you, it is not a matter of politics or even of whether you like the idea of a gun registry. It's a matter of being able to pay your mortgage next month. You are the meat in the sandwich and the only player in the game who isn't using the gun registry as a political football. It doesn't look good for you. It all boils down to a... (

A Monroe County deputy has joined an expanding — and embarrassed — law enforcement fraternity struggling to answer the question: Where's my gun? When the unnamed, eight-year deputy noticed that his submachine gun, $3,500 police radio, uniform and 20 rounds of ammunition had been swiped from his unlocked pickup truck on Thursday morning, he joined two other officers in just over a week whose powerful firearms were stolen or missing. Last week, a 9 mm Colt... (

Register-Guard (Oregon), Editorial

With wars and natural disasters dominating the headlines, it's not surprising that most Americans haven't paid much attention to a Republican congressman's successful three-year campaign to keep government information about illegal gun trafficking hidden from the public. But the gun lobby is paying attention. Now it has instructed its lackeys to pass legislation that would make permanent Kansas Rep. Todd Tiahrt's preposterous spending bill riders that prohibit the...

As the UN review conference on small arms opens in New York on Monday, the Great Lakes region and the Horn of Africa will be in the spotlight in view of the thousands of guns still in wrong hands. But the region, through the Regional Centre on Small Arms, will be eager to demonstrate its efforts in sealing the loopholes through which the arms get into the countries illegally and to recover them. Kenya in particular will be in special focus when Mr Julius Arile... (

In July, 2001, Kenya was among UN member states that gathered in New York for the first time to tackle the proliferation of small arms and seek a lasting solution. The result was an agreement known as the UN Programme of Action (UNPoA), which the states committed themselves to implementing immediately.
