Purported U.N. disarmament document long on hysteria, short on provability

Passing along disinformation distracts from needed efforts and erodes from credibility.Examiner – by David Codrea

“Check this out … is this legit?” an email received over the weekend asked. The question was wholly appropriate, revealing a correspondent on his toes and interested in due diligence.

Attached was a genuine-looking document on apparent United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs letterhead, replete with bar and QR codes (the latter being too blurry in the jpg to read), lending it an air of authenticity (see photo accompanying this article). Titled “Disarmament Commission — Civilian Weapons Confiscation Study Group, New York, 29 -31 July 2013,” the August 5-dated document says its distribution is “restricted,” and proceeds to outline a seven-stage strategy for making civilian possession of “military grade weapons” illegal, progressing down to outlawing all firearms and ammunition, and ultimately establishing “a United Nations Police Taskforce with the specific mission of assisting member nations with the collection of weapons from civilian hands.”  

The document reads like a conspiracy theorist’s worst nightmare on steroids, and while it’s not inconsistent with the documented goals of the most zealous factions in the globalist citizen disarmament camp, suspecting its authenticity is prudent. Conversely, unthinkingly assuming that it’s real, without doing any verification, is irresponsible and foolish, and plays into the hands of those spreading disinformation, or who just want to have a good laugh by getting trusting gun owners all worked up.

While the purported document claims to have “restricted” distribution, meaning it won’t be found posted on the UNODA website, there is other information there that can be checked for consistency, such as the Disarmament-Related Events Calendar, which lists no such conference in New York on those dates. There is also no mention of a “civilian weapons confiscation study group” on the UNODA site. All references to it seem to come from internet gun forums and the like that are spreading this graphic around.

With no belief that any further effort was needed, or expectation that I’d get an answer if I inquired, I nonetheless approached the U.S. Mission to the U.N., and asked them to give a for-the-record response on whether or not the document is a fake. Unsurprisingly, no response has been received, nor am I holding my breath. No doubt some will construe that as further evidence that the document is real, and will view my dismissive sentiments as either blindly naive or intentionally misdirecting. I can’t worry about either response.

What I will do, without apology, is urge gun owners to attempt to validate things before passing them along, and to focus energies on those efforts where credibility can be established. It’s a given that there are global gun grabbers who have total citizen disarmament as a goal. Our best resource in guarding against that has to be the truth, and those who go chasing after and helping to spread disinformation are, at best, an unneeded distraction from the real work at hand. At worst, they’re playing into the hands of people who are using them.

  1. That UN study group comunica’ ended up being REAL after all now didn’t it?First. The very first posted copy I could find, I scanned the document on 2 different bar code locations on the bottom.It took me directly to a UN password to enter site challange.I began recieving email and phone calls appraising me of this documents existence.I asked for the link to the site where it was being viewed on.Entered the site, printed the document, then noticed right away, the square bar code bottom right looked markedly different from the one I studied just the day before.I then scanned the document, made a match, and the site it brought me to was a tiny url. Photo Bucket site with spoofey goofy picture top right and an album open to view contents.Compared both copies left and right, then noticed on my high res screen, the latest document WAS tampered with. You can actually see the contrast difference where it wss altered.Had my friend scour the web and document every site this UNODA comunica’ is found on.I began to do my own research in the mean time, then I found a UN site with different acronyms which I will not disclose.I had found the UN minuits that went along with the UNODA document originally found online.I knew they belonged together because the dates, meeting subject matter, and minutes were all representing themselves as the missing preface page to the latter.My friend emailed me a list of all sites this document was found on. I visited every site on the list, screen shot every document illustrated, about 8 in total.Compared all 9 post original documents and they all had the tampered lower right bar code. Scanned a few .just to realize their all the same.Evidence Summery:We have a lone web site with a UNODA gun confiscation document which verifies that the barcode scan/search brings you to a RESTRICTED, password to enter challange page.Further evidence was another mate to this comunica’, seems to be the cover sheet for the study, but I couldn’t find any other related missing pages.Conclusion:I’m leaning 51/49 that this msy be a genuine UN comunica’, not just a periodic public release.Follow up to this comunica’That next weekend, the Senate held a semi secret vote on the UN initiative of the disarming of US citizens..The vote failed by 4 votes. The results were available online with 1 hour afterwards.Here is an excerpt from the result release.”Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the US Senate giving our Constitutional rights over tothe United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads:”To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”NOW I’M 60/40 CONVINCED.Copy and paste the above statement into your Search engine to view the full results, all yea and ney Senate members vote decision. Caution, not for the weak at heart or the staunchest of party line members. Both parties sold us out equally.A few day’s go bye, just some rumblings here and there online as I was monitoring reaction to this floated UNODA initiative on the more prominate Patriot sites who were convinced it’s a hoaxed paper (which the altered bar code lower right would lead you to believe).Mid morning of 8-15-2013.James Carney is wrapping up his press briefing when a question was feilded.”Did the President sign the ATT Small Arms Treaty?Carney responded right away and said, No, he will sign it once the Senate goes away for recess.Well, Can you picture a mouthful of coffee being spit across the room? Yea…That happened.NOW I’M 90/10 CONVINCED.Well kids, looks like POTUS is now DOTUS. If he unilaterally signs this Treaty with the UN.a. He’s a confirmed Traitor and should be treated as such.b. An arrest warrant should be handed down from a General to a Provost Marshal for immidiate arrest.c. The altered document finding it’s way around Patriot sites and related pages let the gaurds down of the vigilant.d. Our group has on the ground confirmation that UN Military observers have been spotted in the US.I believe the UN mil to mil contract may become initiated the same day. Signing a Treaty and routing Congress again won’t stay quiet on the Hill for long.Confirmed, 56 ships are anchored off shore on the East Coast right now. Check your online sat map. So eyes open, no fear, protect your family from being overtaken by a now ruling Tyrant, Dictators will.God bless.The Disavowed 1.*UPDATE*
