Kofi Annan Gets Civil Liberties Infringement Prize (CLIP) [url]http://politics.yahoo.com/politics/features/us_newswire/20017/0717-149.html[/url] Kofi Annan Gets Civil Liberties Infringement Prize (CLIP) WASHINGTON, July 17 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The gun lobby today awarded UN Secretary General Kofi Annan the Civil Liberties Infringement Prize (CLIP), John Michael Snyder, Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), announced here this evening. Snyder, named Dean of gun lobbyists by national media, said Annan deserves the mock award "because he uses his international position at the United Nations as a platform from which to undermine the traditional, individual Second Amendment civil right of law-abiding American citizens to keep and bear arms." By working to undermine the right to keep and bear arms, Snyder added, "gun-grabbing Kofi and his hoplophobic henchmen in effect oppose the right of people to protect their lives and the lives of their loved ones. They constitute an international menace to the right to life itself. Truly, they are a disgrace to the international community. Their activity at UN Headquarters in New York City constitutes an insult to the United States of America. This is especially true in view of the fact that the UN recently kicked American delegates off the so-called UN Human Rights Commission in favor of representatives from dictatorships in China, Cuba, Libya and the Sudan." Snyder said also that, "we welcome the statement last week by U.S. Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton at the UN opposing the activities of the UN civilian disarmament lobby and vowing that our government would oppose the proposed UN arms control agreement as long as it 'infringed on the right of Americans to bear arms.' Our government must maintain this position. It must not cooperate with UN gun grabbers. "We applaud, too, yesterday's statement by Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia, a CCRKBA Legislator of the Year Awardee, condemning the proposed UN gun-grabbing 'Program of Action.' "We'd go one step beyond that, however, and advocate that the U.S. Congress suspend all contributions from U.S. taxpayers to the UN unless and until Kofi and his gang get off their anti-gun, anti-American high horses." Snyder also is Vice President -- Washington Liaison of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, Treasurer of the Second Amendment Foundation and National Vice President for Public Relations of the American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens.

Gentlemen, Please, I beseech you, try to understand that we at the United Nations are only attempting to show you the error of your ways! The elimination of small arms and light weapons is essential for world peace! All weapons of mass destruction must be removed from the hands of the masses! As a concept,the need for firearms for personal protection is outdated. Local law enforcement professionals are in your employ. And the United States is a super power on the world stage. Government forces will protect your citizenry from any military incursion. I implore you, please contact your representative and show your support for global disarmament! We are doing it for the children! Thank you.
