A friend of mine led me to a publication by The Communitarian Network entitled The Case for Domestic Disarmament. It argues that the then current proposed gun control measures were not the answer: disarming the entire civilian populace was.

David B. Kopel & Christopher C. Little of the Independance Institute offer Communitarians, NeoRepublicans & Guns: Assessing the Case for Firearms Prohibition in response to the previously linked paper.

I would recommend reading both when time permits, as they are lengthy. I would especially recommend those who do not believe there are factions that do see total civilian disarmament as a goal to read both of these documents very carefully.

"...Moreover, unlike drug rehabilitation, prison construction, and the training of more cops, domestic disarmament can be rapidly implemented." Amitai Etzioni
