    Global Gun Grab: The United Nations Campaign to Disarm Americans


    Robert W. Lee | The New American
    Nov 19, 2001


    In Global Gun Grab, William Norman Grigg exposes the UN's worldwide campaign to eliminate civilian ownership of firearms and explains the dangers facing Americans.

    William Norman Grigg, a senior editor of The New American, has covered numerous United Nations events, including the 1994 population summit in Cairo, the 1995 social development summit in Copenhagen, the 2000 Millennium Forum at UN headquarters in New York City, and the 2001 small arms conference, also at UN headquarters. Like many who have toured the UN, he has seen firsthand the statue of a Colt Python revolver (a civilian weapon), its barrel twisted into a knot, in a courtyard in front of the UN building. He has also seen the UN's "Meditation Room" and the pagan imagery near its entrance, which symbolize the UN's contempt for traditional Judeo-Christian morality every bit as much as the anti-gun statue symbolizes its antipathy for civilian-owned firearms.

    Grigg has spent many hours listening to speakers and panelists at UN meetings, where the would-be architects of world government are generally much more explicit in venting their authoritarian designs than they are when they address the "unwashed." He has also spent countless hours studying UN documents. He knows that the UN is not, and was never intended to be, a mere forum for debate. It is instead, and was always intended to be, part of the framework for an eventual world government.

    Grigg is not only a capable researcher but an accomplished writer and thinker. Regular readers of The New American are well acquainted with his powerful prose, having read innumerable articles by him in the pages of this magazine. They are also familiar with his mastery of a range of issues, including the UN.

    But more and more, it is becoming impossible to address other important issues -- from federal land grabs to abortion - without taking into account the intended transfer of power from the U.S. to the UN. In 1995 Grigg wrote his blockbuster book Freedom on the Altar, which exposed the UN's war against God and family. In his just-released book, the subject of this review, he explains that "in matters of disarmament, all roads lead to the UN."

    In Global Gun Grab, Grigg reveals the real intent behind the UN's call for "general and complete disarmament." That intent, he convincingly demonstrates, has much more to do with acquiring a monopoly of power than with eliminating all armaments. Whether the armament in question is a weapon of mass destruction or a Colt Python revolver, the UN seeks a globalized police apparatus that will enable it to impose its will on all the nations and peoples of the Earth. That apparatus will control the world's armaments. And those armaments, Grigg persuasively argues, will be used, not to enforce world peace, but to impose world tyranny.

    Grigg also shows how the UN game plan has been unfolding, not only in faraway lands where civilian populations have been disarmed, but even here in the United States of America.

    From Rwanda to America

    Grigg's small book is tightly written and fast-paced. The reader is whisked from the killing fields of Rwanda to Hometown, U.S.A. It is therefore impossible, in a short review, to provide the reader with a comprehensive summary. A few examples will have to suffice.

    To put the UN threat in its proper perspective, Grigg shows how the UN, rather than usurping power directly, is instead the beneficiary of power that is being transferred to it by globalist insiders. He notes the role of the Council on Foreign Relations, the ubiquitous private organization that has long dominated our foreign policy establishment. He also discusses Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World, the State Department document that President John E Kennedy submitted to the UN in September 1961.



    Grigg recalls that in "the third stage of the Freedom From War plan, 'States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a UN Peace Force." Stage III further provided that 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." The Freedom From War scenario, Grigg points out, remains to this day "the official framework for U.S. arms control policy."

    That policy is frightening in light of the historical record of oppression by tyrannical governments of disarmed populations. Political scientist R. J. Rummel, who coined the term "democide" to describe the systematic murder by governments of their subject populations, calculates that at least 170 million human beings were killed by their governments during the 20th century, making (in Grigg's words) "the unrestrained, lawless state in all of its manifestations" the "single largest source ... of lethal violence." Indeed, "mass murder is the only field of endeavor in which the state outperforms its private sector competition."

    Of course, the danger of gun confiscation leading to mass murder exists even if the initial gun restrictions are put in place by sincere liberals who are attempting (however foolishly) to reduce crime. In Hitler's Germany, for example, the gun laws that "proved so useful to the Nazi regime were enacted by its predecessor, the liberal Weimar Republic." "Once a population has been disarmed by a relatively humane government," Grigg warns, "it is deprived of the most valuable means of resisting the rise of a more corrupt ruling elite."

    He also explains why "tyrants who seek to disarm their would-be subjects physically must first disarm them psychologically." So-called gun "buy-back" (or "turn-in") programs, which entice peaceful citizens to surrender firearms in exchange for cash or other enticements, are part of the psychological ploy. A key objective is to "demonize guns as intrinsically evil," thereby "preparing the public for more aggressive civilian disarmament measures."

    Another aspect of psychological disarmament is the outlandish "zero tolerance" school policy that seeks to "indoctrinate children in the belief that guns and other weapons are such evil objects that they can't be touched, seen, spoken of, alluded to, or even thought of by students, upon penalty of expulsion and incarceration." Grigg cites numerous examples, including instances of suspension or other punishment for drawing pictures of guns, playing "cops and robbers," and possessing tiny replicas of firearms.

    In a chapter devoted to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, Grigg details the role played by Kofi Annan, who was then chief of UN peacekeeping operations. At least 800,000 Tutsis were slaughtered by the Hutu-dominated government and its killing squads. On one occasion, Canadian Lt. General Romeo Dallaire, commander of UN military forces deployed to Rwanda in 1993 to administer a cease-fire, sought permission to raid a government weapons cache. He had been briefed by a defector from the Hutu regime, who also warned that the government planned to register all Tutsis in the capital of Kigali, possibly to pave the way for their extermination. Incredibly, Grigg writes, General Dallaire was not only forbidden "to disarm the government killing squads," but ordered "to share his information with the Hutu government." The fax order, it was determined later, was authored by Annan.

    The Rwandan genocide occurred in large part because the "civilian population was disarmed, except for militia units under central government control." The UN peace accord had "called for efforts to confiscate 'all weapons distributed to or illegally acquired by civilians,"' but before the killing began "the Hutu-dominated government had distributed automatic rifles and hand grenades to official militias and paramilitary gangs. It was this firepower that made the genocide possible."

    Grigg also describes UN "peacekeeping" campaigns in Croatia and Somalia, concluding that from those actions "we can piece together the UN's civilian disarmament 'escalation ladder': First comes the psychological disarmament campaign to persuade civilians to turn in their guns; then comes a show of force to intimidate them into giving up their weapons. Typically, it is only after these efforts fail that lethal military force ... would be used."

    Grigg contends that those Americans "who expect an apocalyptic invasion by blue-helmeted UN troops are fixating on the wrong threat. A much more plausible scenario is that UN civilian disarmament policies would be enforced by Americans against Amen cans." The main threat posed by the UN "is not invasion, but subversion," and in the foreseeable future "the chief impact that the UN will have upon American institutions and policies will come in the form of 'harmonization' -- meaning that our laws and governmental policies will be adjusted to conform with our nation's supposed 'international obligation' as defined in UN treaties and conventions." The most serious threat we face "comes not from the UN itself but from American institutions that are being corrupted and placed at the service of the UN's agenda -- particularly the U.S. military and our law enforcement agencies."

    Call to Action

    In the final chapter of his captivating overview of the UN gun grab, Grigg argues that the goal of gun owners and the American people as a whole must be to get the U.S. out of the UN in order to remove the UN threat. Reform is not the answer.

    Noting the "active and growing constituency for American withdrawal from the world body," Grigg reminds his readers of the tireless work of the John Birch Society "to educate and mobilize the American people at the grass-roots level." The Society, he states, "devotes its efforts to the strategy employed by the Founding Fathers in the decades leading up to American independence: educating the citizenry in sound principles of government; warning the public about the existence of an organized, covert threat to our liberties and free institutions; and mobilizing patriots in an organized, principle-centered effort to defeat the enemies of freedom."

    In short, Grigg's book is not just a compact digest of vital information, it is also a call to action. This reviewer could not recommend it more highly.

    The UN is a threat to the US in just about every way possible.

    I got into a telephone argument with an NRA fund solicitor recently that was begging for money over this.
    I would be more inclined to support them if they really supported the 2nd amendment.
    When they come out publicly on overturning the GCA of 1934 and everything since, (Lautenberg, Brady, Veterans Disarmament act, Registration and the ATF) I will adjust my opinion.

    Get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US.
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    Support H.R. 1146, The American Sovereignty Restoration Act. This proposal terminates the United States' participation in the United Nations.

    The United States is currently engaged in another unconstitutional and undeclared war in the Middle East. President Barack Obama explicitly cited a United Nations resolution as his source of authority to wage war in Libya. This acquiescence to the United Nations is and has been for many decades the excuse the U.S. government uses when it wishes to involve itself in regime changes or changes in the form of government in many countries around the world.

    H.R. 1146 would terminate all U.S. participation in the UN, repeal the UN Headquarters Agreement (which would leave the UN no offices along the East River in New York), stop all appropriations of U.S. taxpayer dollars for the organization, and most importantly, end the United States’ participation in any agreements or conventions with any UN organ, body, or agency or commission. H.R. 1146 is the best vehicle to Get US out! of the United Nations.

    Grigg contends that those Americans "who expect an apocalyptic invasion by blue-helmeted UN troops are fixating on the wrong threat.
    He's right. No foreign military force is ever going to invade the US. We have a nuclear deterrent. That's all there is to it.

    A much more plausible scenario is that UN civilian disarmament policies would be enforced by Americans against Americans." The main threat posed by the UN "is not invasion, but subversion," and in the foreseeable future "the chief impact that the UN will have upon American institutions and policies will come in the form of 'harmonization' -- meaning that our laws and governmental policies will be adjusted to conform with our nation's supposed 'international obligation' as defined in UN treaties and conventions." The most serious threat we face "comes not from the UN itself but from American institutions that are being corrupted and placed at the service of the UN's agenda -- particularly the U.S. military and our law enforcement agencies."
    He may be right about the UN's role in subverting the US government. But in the long run it won't really matter why disarmament and/or other police-state measures are imposed on the US. The effects will be the same. And yes, it will be Americans in the service of the government who will turn their weapons on their fellow Americans to enforce those laws. There is no shortage of people who will do that for a paycheck, an adrenaline rush, and an ego/power trip.

    Agreed!

    I maintain an NRA membership because my shooting range requires it for membership, and also because I figure it helps more than it could ever hurt. But the NRA still pisses me off.

    Does the NRA really even care about the Second Amendment? Only in the sense of advocating that the status quo is maintained, i.e., that we see no further infringements on our right to weaponry. They make little or no effort to get any of the current unconstitutional gun laws on the books repealed.

    The NRA worships the police and military, even though armed government forces are precisely the danger that the Founders had in mind when the Second Amendment was written. And frequently the NRA will request donations with statements like, "You need to support us! Your gun rights depend on it!" That sort of talk is highly annoying because it suggests that if the fight for gun rights is lost in the legislative arena, we'll all just have to meekly surrender those rights. It doesn't even acknowledge that we can take up arms to defend our rights if we have to. The true meaning of the Second Amendment is ignored by the largest and best-known organization that supposedly defends that amendment.

    To end my rant, I'll say that I also dislike the NRA's cheerleading for the GOP establishment. If they really cared about the Second Amendment or freedom in general, they'd have been promoting Ron Paul from the beginning.

    But what if our lofty political leaders requested it once we are just a part of the UN one world gov't? Surely they won't expect the US Military to just accept orders to raid, confiscate and imprison (or kill) American citizens. Someone else has to do it and there's PLENTY of foreigners that would be happy to come here and torment us. Pakistanis maybe? Just an example.

    His thougbt is that it is our own military and police forces that will willingly go along. For all the crap our military and police do I really can't see that happening. Both groups would be imploding in on themselves from infighting, desertion, etc. Blackwater is the only other option and they would be received te same as blue helmets would. I could even see a Blackwater/UN contract!

    I suppose a foreign army could be brought in if US officials requested it. But honestly, that doesn't seem very likely. I think most in the US military would follow orders to confiscate American guns. They've pointed their guns at Americans plenty of times in the past. Examples include the incident with the Bonus Marchers, Kent State, Waco (where they acted as advisers), and gun confiscation after Hurricane Katrina.

    As for the police, I have no doubt that most of them would cheerfully follow orders, though if citizens started firing back, some pigs would definitely desert out of concern for their own safety and that of their families.

    Blackwater is the only other option and they would be received the same as blue helmets would. I could even see a Blackwater/UN contract!
    I'm not sure how many personnel Blackwater has available, but I suspect they're much too small to do anything outside a small area.

    I guess this is all moot, anyway. It shouldn't really matter too much who might come to rob us of our guns and/or our other rights. All that really matters is that we be prepared to resist them to the death.

    I think this book is very important.

    Even if you have no interest in the topic of gun control, it lays out in plan English how the United Nations gains control over the masses. It should be read by anyone that respects Freedom.


    I remember it being a quick easy read. I think I spotted it online somewhere.

    Gun Control... opposing it... is the most important issue of our time. In the past, while being quite pro-second amendment, I have not been enough of a purist. I now realize that the army and the police are the ones that need disarmament, full stop.

    ignominia et contemptum tyrannis

    Habeo excelsum artem; afflixerim cum crudelitate illis qui laedas me

    Shelley's thinly veiled warning to tyrants:

    The monster saw my determination in my face and gnashed his teeth in the impotence of anger. "Shall each man," cried he, "find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn. Man! You may hate, but beware! Your hours will pass in dread and misery, and soon the bolt will fall which must ravish from you your happiness forever. Are you to be happy while I grovel in the intensity of my wretchedness? You can blast my other passions, but revenge remains--revenge, henceforth dearer than light or food! I may die, but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes on your misery. Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful. I will watch with the wiliness of a snake, that I may sting with its venom. Man, you shall repent of the injuries you inflict.
