UN and NYC Activists Discuss Gun Control

As the Fourth Biennial Meeting of States on Small Arms and Light Weapons was assembling at the United Nations in New York City, a smaller, quieter, but no less resolute group was convening on the same issue. On June 15, 2010, in the Church Center for the United Nations, a diverse mix of people and organizations came together to discuss the cancerous effect small arms and light weapons have on communities around the world.
