The central thesis of the article entitled “U.S. Policy on Small Arms and Light Weapons,” by Loretta Bondì, which appeared in the Winter 2006 edition of the Naval War College Review, is that the U.S. system of export controls on small arms is as good as any, and better than most other countries, but that American moral authority in this area is undermined by its permitting widespread civilian ownership of firearms.
