The U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday approved a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty aimed at regulating the estimated $60 billion international arms trade, brushing aside gun rights groups' concerns that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry in the U.S.
"This is a good day for the United Nations, and a good day for the peoples of the world," said Australian Ambassador Peter Woolcott, the lead negotiator during the process.
"This is a very good framework, I think, to build on — it's fair, I think it's balanced, and it's strong. But it's only a framework," Mr. Woolcott said. "And it'll only be as good as its implementation."
