U.N. Disarmament Commission Study on Military Grade Weapons in U.S.-Fiction!

Summary of the eRumor:  
This is a forwarded email that contains a very official looking document allegedly from the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs.  It outlines the framework to outlaw military grade weapons in the United States.

The Truth:  
TruthOrFiction.com found no such document on the website of the United Nations (U.N.).

The Office for Disarmament Affairs at the U.N. does exist but it is not seeking to outlaw hand guns, rifles or military grade weapons in the United States.   This department is primarily focused on nuclear, biological, chemical and weapons of mass destruction.

Their mission, according to their webpage is to promote:


Nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation
Strengthening of the disarmament regimes in respect to other weapons of mass destruction, and chemical and biological weapons
Disarmament efforts in the area of conventional weapons, especially landmines and small arms, which are the weapons of choice in contemporary conflicts.
