UN Gun Grab Follows State Department Plan

“Complete disarmament” of the American people

The UN Arms Trade Treaty that has been identified by observers as a flagrant threat to the second amendment and which Barack Obama is determined to sign has its roots in a 1961 State Department memorandum which explains how the United Nations will oversee “complete disarmament” of the American people under the ruse of preventing war.

The UN Arms Treaty has caused so much controversy because it outlines a plan to target “all types of conventional weapons, notably including small arms and light weapons,” according to Forbes’ Larry Bell.

Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton also warns that the agreement “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”

A letter sent last month by 130 Republican House members to President Obama argued that the treaty should be rejected because it infringes on the “fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms”. The letter adds that “…the U.N.’s actions to date indicate that the ATT is likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy, and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights.”

Using the rhetoric of the threat post by terrorists, insurgents and “international crime syndicates,” the UN is busy trying to imply that all weapons are somehow involved in illegal activity on a global scale and should therefore be controlled and regulated by a global authority.

This is precisely the same language used in a 1961 U.S. State Department briefing which outlined a long term agenda to carry out a “Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World.”

Invoking the threat of nuclear warfare, the document spells out a plan to create a “United Nations Peace Force” that would “enforce the peace as the disarmament process proceeds.”

While the document initially focuses on scrapping nuclear weapons, it later makes it clear that the only groups allowed to own weapons of any kind would be governing authorities, “for the purpose of maintaining internal order,” and the UN “peacekeeping” force itself, which would require “agreed manpower.”

“The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes,” states the document.

While the memorandum outlines a broader mandate to destroy national sovereignty, eviscerate national armies and institute the UN as the planet’s supreme authority with a world army, the document serves as a stark reminder that the plan for the United Nations to oversee the abolition of the second amendment has been in the works for decades.

As Bell points out in his Forbes article, the threat of the Obama administration relying on a UN treaty to do what successive administrations have tried but failed to accomplish – taking a huge bite out of the second amendment – is by no means far fetched.

After all, a plethora of UN treaties and international agreements have already stripped the United States of its sovereignty and its power to decide its own laws. The power to authorize U.S. involvement in wars and conflicts has now been almost completely stripped from Congress and handed to the United Nations.

Following Barack Obama’s arrogant rebuff of Congress in seeking approval to strike Libya, during which he churlishly remarked, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question,” Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta affirmed that the U.S. now requires “international permission” before deciding on its military policy.

Other Obama-endorsed UN power grabs like the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) as well as Agenda 21 and sustainable development are also serving to decimate national sovereignty and remain almost completely under the radar.

You only need to look at the European Union, which now crafts around 50 per cent of the laws made in member states like Britain, to understand how unelected global institutions can and have dictated policy on a national level.

The UN Arms Trade Treaty presents an existential threat to the guns rights of American citizens and should be rejected for what it is – yet another attempt by the Obama administration, in the aftermath of the Fast and Furious scandal, to abolish the second amendment by stealth.

    If guns are outlawed, only outlaws, criminals, and criminal governments will have guns. I guess i’ll be an outlaw…

  2. I would like to see this 1961 State Department memorandum and read it for myself. Does it “explain” or “warn” about this plan??

  3. Wow… I read about the national coal act that was passed in Britain I believe in 1908. Basically if you worked for a coal mine. You lived in a home provided by the mine owner. You shopped at a store owned by the same guy. Your child was educated till grade four then that child was destined by law to become a coal miner. Keep em stupid and keep em poor. The interesting thing about this law was what preceded this unjust act. Britain passed a national gun registry in 1904. In Early 1908 before the National Coal act was written into law they confiscated all the guns and ammo from the working class.

    When riots broke out shortly after the act was made law. Britain used its military to kill 18 000 of its own citizens who were fighting with picks and shovels.

    What do they say about fools who don’t learn from history?
    We are living in scary times. We have all taken our freedoms for granted and have allowed a corrupt system to methodically restrict our freedoms under the guise of protecting us. I beginning to see the truth! We need to be protected from our Governments!
