Nope.  There is no putting arms beyond use.  The Maoists are keeping
their guns.

You will also note stuff like the nationalisation of the property of the
monarch and a set of other stuff that goes far beyond the tinkerings of
New Sinn Fein.

Also, note, this is an agreement between the Maoists and other parties -
it does not involve working with the British or American imperialists
unlike New Sinn Fein.

Also, this is an agreement dated November 6, barely a month ago.  It
remains to be seen what the outcome on the ground will be.

In Ireland, the sell-out began in the late 1980s, so we now have almost
20 years over which to judge it.
