Tom Mason discusses the U.N.'s rules of consensus and negotiation. Ginny Simone speaks with the executive secretary of the World Forum on the Future of Sport Shooting Activities (WFSA) about the current United Nations meetings toward an International Arms Trade Treaty. Mason explains how the rule of consensus in these negotiations could affect the outcome or be entirely ineffectual, and he details the long, complicated process that will lead to a four-week conference on the treaty in 2012.
