" The blueprint for
how Americans would be disarmed during a declared civil emergency is
contained in an Army manual that outlines a plan to confiscate firearms
to prevent them falling into the hands of rioters or dissidents."
In July 2012, the
process by which this could take place was made clear in a leaked US
Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” (PDF) dating from 2006. Similar plans were also outlined in an updated manual released in 2010 entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations."
