1 Preventing the Potential Danger of Civilian Gun Possession By: Noah Lin (Chair) Human Rights

2 There are numerous nations in the world that allow gun carriage. Most of the countries allow police forces to carry guns, some countries such as the United States of America, Switzerland, Finland and so on allow civilian possession of guns. Guns are weapons that are designed to launch projectiles, bullets, which travel with high velocity over great distance. Introduction:

3 Eventually a gun became fatal and dangerous. As a gun developed to a fearful weapon, people started owning guns for protection. It just forms a cycle of guns posing as threats to self-protection, to corrupted use of guns and back to guns as threats. People need guns for self-protection but others abuse the use of a guns.

4 Gun Possession: to know the presence of a gun and have physical control over the gun; to own one or multiple guns Gun Control: efforts to regulate and control sales of guns Open Carry: openly carrying a firearm in public Self-Protection: the act of defending oneself Permit: authorization or consent to do or own something Assault Weapons: any automatic or semi automatic firearms Ballistic Fingerprint: the unique marking that a gun leaves on a bullet after the bullet is fired from a gun Definition of Key Terms:

5 People around the world have diverse opinions about guns and the danger they possess. Yes, guns dont kill people, but people do. Although some people misuse guns but some still need guns as reassurance and self-protection. Is there a way to completely ban guns, is there another solution where people can have self- protection without guns, or will guns have to stay within the society and culture and somehow the potential danger of gun possession will decrease? The purpose of this issue is to come up with a resolution that can prevent danger from civilian possession of guns, or in fact completely terminate the potential dangers of gun possession. Overview of Topic:

6 Exports: United States of America Russian Federation France China UK Germany Italy Exports: United States of America Russian Federation France China UK Germany Italy Imports: Australia China India Pakistan Turkey Imports: Australia China India Pakistan Turkey Major Countries Involved:

7 2012 – Start of Arms Trade Treaty 1791 – Second Amendment of the United States of America is ratified 1911 – Turkey establishes gun control 1929 – Soviet Union establishes gun control 1935 – China establishes gun control 1938 – Germany establishes gun control 1956 – Cambodia establishes gun control 1964 – Guatemala establishes gun control 1968 – Gun Control Act of the United States of America 1970 – Uganda establishes gun control 1998 – United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs formed Timeline:

8 Arms Trade Treaty: International arms trade is not regulated, and the United Nations is coming together to put forth a resolution that can solve this issue and hopefully have all countries come to an agreement on regulations of arms trade. Although this treaty is an in-process treaty, but it can be a great source for the information needed. DC/3034: This is a press release document on the Review Conference for Illicit Small Arms trade. It records the discussions on links between gun violence, development and ammunition control. This conference reviews ways of preventing and stopping illegal arms trade. DC/3385: This is a press record of Review Conference on rights to gun ownership. In the conference people mentioned the right to self-defense, especially for the young and weak, or people with a disadvantage. This meeting splits the line between legal gun ownership from illegal arms trade. Do people have a right to own guns? How do we determine who has a right to own guns?
