Weapon trade

Uncontrolled small arms' circulation in Africa cause death and make the continent unsafe. 
Speaking of small arms, Kalashnikovs and AK-47 are all over the continent and, since 1980, they have become the killing weapon of choice. These arms make victims and they keep flowing into the continent. Is the UN  aware of the illegal trade? Sure! But what can the UN do against somecountries veto?                                                                                                      ,    
When the weapons arrive in Africa, the traffic becomes easy because the boarders are porous and the leaders are corrupted.
This illegal trade is highly profitable to the countries of fabrication, but what about the civilians? the children who are forced to serve in different rebel groups? People dying in syria? We should be more concerned about these lives and start thinking about peace issues.

  1. This is sadly true. I wrote my MRP on this topic and it is difficult to find a solution.
