Mohandas Gandhi, the greatest pacifist of the 20th century, is widely quoted as having said, "Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look back upon the Act depriving the whole nation of arms as the blackest."
Some have struggled to reconcile his pacifism with an opposition to disarmament. But there really is nothing to reconcile once you understand, as Gandhi said on another occasion, that "the State represents violence in a concentrated and organized form."
