    Vote Coming to Confirm Anti-gun Radical
    -- "Guns Kill Civil Society," says State Department Nominee

    Gun Owners of America

    Tuesday, June 23, 2009


    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled a Wednesday vote on a
    State Department nominee who supports gun control on a global scale.

    While advocates of the Second Amendment have come to expect that
    appointees of President Barack Obama would be hostile to the rights of
    gun owners, the president's nominee for legal advisor to the State
    Department reaches a whole new level of anti-gun extremism.

    Harold Hongju Koh, who served at the State Department under the Clinton
    administration, is a self-described "trans-nationalist" who believes
    that our laws -- and our Constitution -- should be brought into
    conformity with international agreements.

    "If you want to be in the global environment, you have to play by the
    global rules," Koh told a Cleveland audience.

    Koh's positions treat our constitutional law as if it were a mere local
    ordinance on the greater world stage. This is of particular concern to
    gun owners at a time when the U.S. Congress is under pressure from
    President Obama to ratify an international gun control treaty with
    countries in the western hemisphere. That treaty, known by its Spanish
    acronym CIFTA, would likely serve as a forerunner to a more extensive
    United Nations initiative, the "Program of Action to Prevent, Combat and
    Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in all its
    Aspects."

    The Bush administration, under the leadership of UN Ambassador John
    Bolton, rejected the small arms treaty. Bolton plainly told the world
    that the United States will not accept a gun control document that
    violates our Constitutional right to bear arms. Harold Koh commented
    that Bolton was being "needlessly provocative."

    In a paper entitled "A world drowning in guns," Koh maintains that a
    civil society cannot exist with broad gun ownership: "Guns kill civil
    society," he said.

    Koh is eager to assume his post at the State Department, having lamented
    that there is only so much that can be done from the outside to push gun
    control treaties, and that ultimately we need people like him in
    positions of power. The chief lawyer for the State Department is just
    the position someone like him needs to put his agenda into play.

    While Koh's nomination has been delayed largely because of Second
    Amendment concerns, Sen. Reid plans to force a vote this week.

    It is imperative that gun owners contact their Senators and insist that
    they vote AGAINST this anti-gun extremist.

    ACTION: Please contact your Senators immediately and urge them to
    oppose Harold Hongju Koh's nomination to the State Department. You can
    use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
    http://gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written
    message below.


    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    Dear Senator:

    The Senate is expected to soon vote on a State Department nominee who
    supports gun control on a global scale.

    Harold Hongju Koh, who served at the State Department under the Clinton
    administration, is a self-described "trans-nationalist" who believes
    that our laws -- and our Constitution -- should be brought into
    conformity with international agreements.

    According to Koh, "If you want to be in the global environment, you have
    to play by the global rules." Well, I don't support global rules that
    contradict our own Constitution.

    Koh supports international gun control treaties such as the United
    Nations initiative entitles the "Program of Action to Prevent, Combat
    and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in all
    its Aspects."

    When former UN Ambassador John Bolton told the world that the United
    States will not accept a gun control document that violates our
    Constitutional right to bear arms, Harold Koh commented that Bolton was
    being "needlessly provocative."

    And in a 2003 Fordham Law Review article entitled "A world drowning in
    guns," Koh maintains that a civil society cannot exist with broad gun
    ownership: "Guns kill civil society," he wrote.

    I urge you to reject this trans-nationalist, anti-gun extremist who
    would place foreign laws and international agreements on equal footing
    (at minimum) with the U.S. Constitution.

    Sincerely,

    Angry Who is Harold Koh?

    Oh boy yet more attacks on us....

    With 65 votes last week -- including those of 8 Republicans -- Harry Reid successfully ushered yet another one of Obama's radical anti-gun zealot nominees closer to a final Senate confirmation vote.

    I'm talking about Harold Koh, former Clinton flunky and current nominee to one of the State Department's highest positions -- the senior legal advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    So just who is this guy? And why should you care?

    In his infamous essay/lecture "A World Drowning in Guns," Koh summarily declared: "There are more guns than any sane civilization would ever need."1

    To solve "this huge and growing global problem" of guns, Koh proposes an assortment of measures the United States must take to "establish a global system of effective controls on small arms and light weapons" -- a "global regulatory process" or even "global regime" to combat what he calls "grotesque gun oversupplies."2

    Relying on faulty logic, Koh smugly proclaims: "The very promiscuous presence of guns chokes civil society. Guns kill civil society. The pervasive presence of guns perpetuates a culture of societal violence."3

    The various strategies he proposes to curtail the "gun problem" may interest you.

    First, he says, our government needs to create a "law-declaring forum that can operate at a global level to declare an international norm against the illicit sale, transfer, and use of small arms and light weapons."4

    The absence of a definition for "illicit" notwithstanding, what could be next?

    Oh, you guessed it: We need to "bring home" those "norms" and "internalize" them into the "domestic statutes, executive practice, and judicial systems of those participating nations" -- that is, subvert the national sovereignty of each country that came together to globalize gun control, and put international law in its place.5

    (It just keeps getting better, doesn't it?)

    After asserting the necessity for a "marking and tracing regime" to track every gun made and sold in America, Koh then beckons the state to "establish a national firearms control system and a register of manufacturers, traders, importers, and exporters."6

    (Gee, where have we heard that before?)

    But that's not all. Listen to this:



    One particularly intriguing idea is the idea of promoting production of smart or 'perishable ammunition,' e.g., AK-47 bullets that would degrade and become unusable over time. Ironically, by focusing exclusively on controlling the delivery mechanism -- the guns themselves -- the small arms activists [read: gun grabbers] may have overlooked a surer longer-term solution to the international firearms problem.7

    The guy sounds like he's ordering a pizza, describing a sunset, or expounding on a piece of music...

    But he's talking about seizing your rights! And that "intrigues" him!

    Just to remind you, this is the guy whom Obama wants to advise Hillary Clinton in her role as Secretary of State. Can you imagine a more heinous partnership in crime?

    Call your Senator today and demand a NO VOTE ON KOH!

    Anti-American through and through. Globalist who thinks the US should be part of and ruled by some New World Order. Read up on some of his thinkings and you will get a better idea of not just his Anti-Gun agenda but his entire view of how the US should be ruled.

    Guys seriously and unfortunately there is not much we will be able to do to withstand the biblical prophesy taking place. America will eventually become part of a one world government. Its God's word.

    Correct.

    But we know what it brings...the most oppressive government the world has ever seen.

    We sure don't have to help it happen.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I wouldn't worry about Harry Reid, more than likely he will not be reelected this time around, and neither will his President if they keep walking down the path they are headed.

    And besides, what are they going to do, go door-to-door taking our guns away? And as far as biblical prophecy is concerned, we can change it if we wish, all we have to do is stand up for what we believe in and vote, and if votes don't work, then you know what needs to be done...
