Until the 21st century, the United Nations had only taken care about military hardware and especially about weapons of mass destruction (this is, nuclear, chemical or biological). Moreover, small and light firearms (which are commonly used to commit homicide) appear as an interesting issue when the United Nations starts to pay attention to a new problem emerged from the globalization. I am referring to transnational organized crime, which in the 21st century started to become a real threat for the stability, sovereignty and independence of the countries themselves.
