Pak Open Air Home Made Arms

What is one of the major problems with the war in Afghanistan?  Just your friendly, neighborhood home made arms, and the open air market that sells them.

The famed Khyber Pass is home to some of the most entrepreneurial and passionate people on the face of the planet.  From the video, these people believe in "many sons, and many guns."  In a normal world, I'd say that is a good thing to have; in this region, it often means dead US soldiers.  To me, that means just one more reason as to why we are fighting a war on a front which is not winnable but only manageable.  The video itself is dated 2006 with an edit and tack on from 2009.  The situation hasn't changed all that much removed from either of those dates.

If you scroll down the article, it does take a pot shot at the NRA for it's devout opposition to the UN and it's international arms trade "regulation" schemes.  My question is in that region where for thousands of years, conquerors have failed to master the terrain and the people, how does even the UN think it will be able to regulate what is a pure black market?  Simple answer is, that it can't, and it won't.

This post did not start out as one about our 2A rights, but it certainly is a nail in the coffin of the bureaucrat that believe they can control us, even from their "high perch" in New York.  If anyone for any minute can watch this video and believe the UN is sincere in stopping "small arms trade of illicit and illegal guns" throughout the world, then you are either a libtard, a Utopian, an idiot, or just plan naive.
