Friday, Nov. 12th, U.S. State Department Visited My Maritime Treaty Post 4 times Totaling 1 hour, 10 mins Duration!
By Don Hamrick, American Common Defence Review (blog)
Saturday, November 13, 2010

What started out in 2002 was a simple case of judicial review of a U.S. Coast Guard Final Agency Action for recognition of Second Amendment rights for U.S. merchant seamen who must take small arms training in the 9mm Baretta, 12ga shotgun, and the M14 rifle as a prerequisite for employment as an Able Seamen aboard U.S. Government vessels of the Pre-Position Fleet as required by Military Sealift Command and U.S. Navy regulations. I wanted that recognition from the U.S. Coast Guard to be in the form of an endorsement on the Merchant Mariner’s Document (MMD) to read National Open Carry Handgun.

However, because my foresight for a need for such recognition in light of the steady increase in Somali piracy in 2002 prompted me to submit my application to the Coast Guard as an individual on the recognized basis that there were and still are no federal laws or regulations for or against a National Open Carry Handgun endorsement on the MMD the Coast Guard failed to comply with the Oath of Office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, including the Bill of Rights which includes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and the Ninth Amendment right to openly keep and bear arms in intrastate, interstate, and maritime travel (aboard U.S. flag vessels but at the discretion of the master in accordance with maritime law, i.e., prepration for pirate attacks).

MORAL VINDICATION OF MY 2002 APPLICATION TO THE U.S. COAST GUARD

For the record! I want it understood that I did, in fact and law, have an instinctive need, that I had the foresight and the logic to anticipate the need for firearms aboard U.S. flag merchant vessels in 2002 to file my application with the U.S. Coast Guard in 2002 but the Coast Guard wrongfully denied my application. And as a direct result of that Final Agency Action denying my application it was seven (7) years later that Somali pirates attacked and boarded M/V MEARSK ALABAMA. U.S. Navy Seals ultimate were forced to kill three Somali priates to resolve that piracy incident.

In like manner to the U.S. Coast Guards denial of the human right to armed self-defense have a direct correlation with the pirate attack on the unarmed M/V MEARSK ALABAMA in 2009 so it is again a comparable incident reported from Kenya:

Kenyan Navy Kills 3 Suspected Pirates
November 13, 2010

The Kenyan defense ministry spokesman says three suspected Somali pirates have been killed following a skirmish with Kenyan naval forces off the coastal town of Kilifi.
Three men were shot and a fourth drowned after they ambushed a naval patrol inside Kenya’s territorial waters at around 11:30 p.m. (2030 GMT) on Friday, Bogita Ongeri said on Saturday.

Ongeri told AFP that the attack took place some 60 kilometers (40 miles) north of the country’s main port of Mombasa.

“The government will not relent in its fight against piracy,” Ongeri said.

The latest attack comes amid rising concerns that Somali pirates are continuing to expand their area of operations south and east of the Indian Ocean, making it harder for international anti-piracy naval missions patrolling the dangerous waters of the Gulf of Aden to foil their attacks.

Earlier on Saturday, Chinese media said a gang of pirates had hijacked a Panamanian-registered ship, the Yuan Xiang, with 29 Chinese sailors onboard in the Arabian Sea.

The owner of the vessel, the Ningbo Hongyuan Ship Management Co. Ltd., was informed by the pirates that the ship had change course to sail toward Somalia, the report added.

In another development, pirates holding a British couple for over a year claimed they had received a ransom of 1 million dollars and would release Paul and Rachel Chandler on Sunday

Because of international resistance to arming merchant vessels and their crew I submit that there is a direct cause and effect from ignoring the individual human right to armed self-defense. What good is a human right to life if you cannot defend your human right to life by force of arms. If piracy is viewed as a crime against humanity then the international deliberate indifference or belligerence against the individual human right to armed self-defense is also a crime against humanity. This is true on the high seas just as it is true on land throughout the world. Governments must stop denying the individual human right to armed self-defense.

The links above in their collective form, especially the November 10th article, “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Sets the Stage for New Maritime Treaty...” is an implied vindication of my 2002 application to the Coast Guard because the end result of the activities of the U.S. Coast Guard in collaboration with the U.S. State Department will be (or should be) the ratification of a new maritime human rights treaty recognizing the human right to armed self-defense of merchant vessels and their crew to defend against piracy and armed robbery. Because of the reported activities of the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. State Department I have already been morally vindicated. With the printed copy of this email and the included links it is my hope that I will be legally vindicated by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

Thank you.
