Hoisting Harold Koh With His Own Petard

koh-na02-hsmall-verticalNow, here’s a thought. I anticipate that Koh’s answer would be that since other countries did not sign on to the Second Amendment–as the Second Amendment is not a treaty of any kind–that it would not be international law. But laws that are not treaties get selectively plucked from other countries all the time by people like Dean Koh, in order to justify the implementation of various policy goals. Why shouldn’t supporters of the right to bear arms claim that the Second Amendment is international law?

Whom do I have to bribe in order to get this and related questions asked of Dean Koh at his confirmation hearing?
