At the moment I am writing a term paper on how "The illegal trade of firearms is a major contributor to the violation of human rights around the world."

Could anyone give me a few strong arguements of how and why this is the case?

idk if youve seen the movie "lord of war". nick cage is in it. hes an arms dealer and he sells weapons to people all over the world. i cant remember if it actually was based on a true story and i dont really think it was. but theres no doubt that things happen just like they do in the movie.

it shows a couple of scences of him selling weapons to people in Africa. one scene towards the end hes going to sell them to some government people who were going to use them on innocent civilians right after they were bought.

try and see if you can find incedences of certain governements or gorrila groups who buy illegal weapons and use them in the same way.
