Arming the World for Peace?

The Obama administration has just taken action to seriously loosen restrictions on the sale of weapons abroad.

Already, the United States dominates world weapons sales, accounting for 78% of such sales in 2011. Russia is in second place with 5.6%.

Tell the White House and Congress to end foreign weapons sales, not expand them:
