FOR GENERAL & COMPLETE DISARMAMENT
IN A PEACEFUL WORLD (1961)
This document contains two of the worst fears of American constitutionalists.
1) the delegation of authority to an international governing body and
2) disarmament in accordance with that governing body's protocols
This document, which is a real State Department text, doesn't just propose "gun grabbing", it also recommends the disbanding of military forces! Legitimate military functions are limited to "preserving internal order" (a potential attack on the 3rd Amendment) and membership in the "United Nations Peace Force". The actual international disarming process would take place in three stages; these are laid out in the booklet. Also included is the "Declaration on Disarmament" which member nations would presumably be expected to sign on to.
If you want freedom from war, quit electing egomaniacs who love it!
"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."
