Gun restrictions come to the forefront each time there is a tragedy, such as the Aurora, Colo. incident. However, there is plenty of legislation looming in the background year-round, that tries to beat up on the law-abiding gun owner. The granddaddy of all these bad restrictions has been the UN Small Arms Treaty. While one would think of "small arms" as rifles and handguns, this treaty was written to include everything from tanks on down, and was so far reaching that it included firearms technology, not just the guns themselves. The treaty was in theory, a registration scheme of ALL guns, worldwide. While you might think this a good idea, it included all personally owned firearms, not just military issued weapons.
