we the people do not deal in arms we own them, buy them.
States can use weapons in conformity with the UN Charter. But the unregulated arms trade does not ensure that arms are only transfered to that end. What is more, an excessive build-up of weapons can lead to tension and insecurity among countries. More arms also means a higher risk of misuse and diversion. For all those reasons, in the arms trade a particular responsibility must be expected from all countries.
