For Immediate Release:
The United Nations is now accepting applications by established gun, hunting, and self-defense rights civil society groups to speak at the final plenary meeting of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty Conference on Monday, March 18th. The Deadline to submit an application is January 31, 2013.
The United Nations is currently accepting requests by new non-governmental organizations to attend and make their views known with respect to the highly controversial Arms Trade Treaty. Groups are welcome and would clearly help balance the views of traditionally overly represented groups like IANSA and the Control Arms Campaign, which seek to impose categorical bans on commonly used arms used for self-defense, hunting, and competitive marksmanship in the United States and elsewhere.
Again, the deadline is January 31, 2013. The process is specified in the official Aide Memoire For Non-Governmental Organizations, which available at the United Nations Website here.
The Arms Trade Treaty has been negotiated over the course of a decade and is now in the final meeting. The UN information site for relevant background documents is here. TSM Worldwide LLC has written other potentially useful resources here.

We would be delighted to help any organization seeking to represent the many interests of international civil society groups representing the interests of international competitive shooters, hunters, and self-defense groups.
