A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: SC#95

Proposed by: New Brussels

Description: WA Security Council Resolution #95: Liberate Christmas shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The Security Council,

RECOGNIZING that Christmas is a large region with a long and rich history;

NOTING that Christmas is the home to a population of distinguished natives;

APPALLED at the instability of the region caused by numerous raider groups;

ACKNOWLEDGING that Security Council resolution #95 allowed native defender forces to retake the region; however;

MAINTAINING that the SC #95 has already served its purpose;

ARGUING that it is a region's right to allow its natives to govern however they see fit;

ASSERTING that the liberation remains an obstacle for the native population to do so.

HEREBY repeals SC #95 Liberate Christmas.

More Guns, Less Crime

A resolution to tighten or relax gun control laws.

Category: Gun Control

Decision: Relax

Proposed by: The United Zones of the West

Description: NOTING that gun control is already very tight,

FINDING statistics that more guns equates to less crime,

REALIZING more guns means less crime may sound absurd,

REMEMBERING not everything works in a direct proportion manner,

KNOWING that if every single person had the chance to defend themselves, there would be less crime,

ACKNOWLEDGING the fact that even if guns were outlawed, criminals would still acquire weapons,

SEEING that guns do not in themselves kill people,

AFFIRMING shooting guns at shooting ranges are very fun if done safely,

HEREBY requires nations to:

1. ALLOW all law-abiding, mentally stable citizens the chance to own and maintain arms to protect and defend both themselves and their family.

2. ALLOW at least a single weapon in a citizen's home or on their person.

3. LOOSEN gun laws restricting the ownership or maintaining of arms.

Approvals: 8 (The United Zones of the West, Imperial Eagle, Chester Pearson, Imperial Virmir, United Islands of Sootopolis, Aitheria, Liberated Global Overstate, Swaggiliciousness)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 57 more approvals)

Repeal "Ban on Leaded Fuel"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#301

Proposed by: Lucecittia

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #301: Ban on Leaded Fuel (Category: Environmental; Industry Affected: Automotive) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: ARGUING that "burning short-chain hydrocarbons in some types of engine can lead to irregularities in the combustion cycle" is, using the technical term, "bloody stupid" - that is, "unworthy of WA consideration";

CONCERNED for the economies of nations that rely on leaded fuel;

NOTING that the only reasons given for the proposal to be repealed are "irregularities in the combustion cycle" of cars and "health problems";

ARGUING that the health problems are not of international scope;

FURTHER ARGUING that banning any fuel made with "toxic" chemicals could very well halt scientific advancement;

FURTHER STILL ARGUING that the median toxic dose of lead is yet to be defined, making "comparable or worse toxicity" meaningless;

HEREBY REPEALS RESOLUTION #301: "Ban on Leaded Fuel".

Approvals: 2 (Lucecittia, Swaggiliciousness)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 63 more approvals)

Voting Ends: in 3 days 1 hour
