Description:
Rebecca Peters is the former Director of the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA).As chair of the (Australian) National Coalition for Gun Control at the time of the Port Arthur massacre in 1996, Peters played a key role in the introduction of stricter gun control and gun confiscation, in Australia, an area in which she remains active today. It is ironic that one of the guns possessed by the perpetrator of The Port Arthur Massacre was a gun which had been handed in for destruction in a previous amnesty in the State of Victoria.

The Umut Foundation says:



Prior to her work with IANSA, Peters worked for the Open Society Institute, a private foundation funded by George Soros.

"The most expensive kind of violence, is gun violence" - Rebecca Peters, 'Great Gun Debate'


She has been criticised by sporting shooters around the world and the National Rifle Association in the United States, which believes that Rebecca Peters, along with the United Nations, wishes to "strip all citizens of all nations of their right to self-protection" via gun-ownership by "banning civilian ownership of firearms" and to rid the world of shooting sports.<!-- Pages not available as of July 15,2007 --
