International Pro-Gun Organization?
I have to turn in a paper for college regarding international organizations. I thought it would be good for general knowledge to concentrate on pro-gun orgs, however I've been searching and haven't found anything on Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc...
Basically what I'm looking for is an International Organization that compares to what the NRA/GOA does in the USA, but at the international level (say, i.e. the UN, OAS(OEA), etc...). Is there such an animal out there?
Here's a link to a few of the related ones I found (most are national):

That is going to be tough considering very few countries have provisions for a "right" to arms. If there isn't, it is tough for its scitizens to justify firearms posession. To help your search, look for gun clubs in Switzerland or England. Goto their websites and look for a "Links" page and see what they have.

About the only "large" organization is the NRA (yes, they do help to fight in other countries).
Most of the others that I've heard of overseas are either grass roots or local gun clubs.
I hope you find what you need.

Not to be a pessimist but I very much doubt a true international org' at all.
What you want, if it existed, would be the exact opposite of the UN and its stand on guns - but hell would freeze first!
