Gun Owners of America: Contact your legislators on Harold Koh!

May 20, 2009

Gun Owners of America has put up a great site where you can contact your legislators to ask them to stop the Harold Koh nomination -here’s what they say:

Don’t Let Senate Confirm “A World Drowning in Guns” Author
Do you want Harold Koh shaping U.S. foreign policy?
The full Senate will soon vote on whether to confirm Obama nominee Harold Koh as Legal Advisor to the State Department.  As columnist Oliver North reminds us, “The person holding the position helps formulate and implement U.S. foreign policy; advises the Justice Department on cases with international implications; influences U.S. positions on issues considered by international bodies; represents the U.S. at treaty negotiations and international conferences; [and] has input into the drafting of Security Council resolutions and the interpretation of treaties.”

Koh is an activist lawyer who wants to make U.S. law subordinate to international law, particularly on gun control.  In 2002, he gave a speech titled “A World Drowning in Guns” which, according to Heritage’s Brian Darling, called for a U.N.-governed regime that would make the U.S. “submit information about their small arms production” (read more here).

Someone who believes the U.N. should control or regulate U.S. policy does not belong in the State Department. Contact your senators and ask them to vote against the confirmation of Harold Koh as the State Department’s legal advisor.
