F.A.I.R. Trade Group addresses the United Nations on the Arms Trade Treaty. Representing businesses engaged in legitimate and legal trade in firearms, F.A.I.R. voiced its opposition to an all-encompassing and legally binding treaty that will infringe on legitimate international trade in firearms that can be lawfully owned for individual defense, sporting or collecting purposes.

The ATT then will become yet one more tool for certain governments to increase their market share to the detriment of those democracies that accept and abide by the treaty." Johanna Reeves, Executive Director for F.A.I.R., presented the statement to the U.N.
