Canada holds off on signing arms treaty
It wants to study its effect on Canadian gun owners. That seems to be more than the U.S. did before signing. Of course, an unratified treaty isn't legally binding, or empowering, and I rather doubt this is going to be ratified. I also doubt that the major arms exporters to civil wars, genocidal governments, etc., are going to sign on, let alone follow it. When was the last time you saw their followers toting M-16s? AKs, yes, M-16s no.
