If We Have No “Arms”, How Can We “Tie” Our Shoes

At the end of 1995, US Senator George Mitchell was working on his six principles concerning the move to peace and the decommissioning of arms. (Clinton visited in November, 1995.) This is presumably the reference to “arms” though the reference to “tie” is obscure – perhaps to tying weapons to their sheaths so that they cannot be quickly drawn.
