U.N. Denies Self-Defense is a Human Right!
Well, there's a surprise! Everybody should read this paper:

HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL
Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights
Fifty-eighth session
Item 6 of the provisional agenda
SPECIFIC HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES
Prevention of human rights violations committed with small arms and light weapons

Final report submitted by Barbara Frey, Special Rapporteur,
in accordance with Sub-Commission resolution 2002/25**

[...]

A. Self-defence as an exemption to criminal responsibility, not a human right
20. Self-defence is a widely recognized, yet legally proscribed, exception to the universal duty to respect the right to life of others. Self-defence is a basis for exemption from criminal responsibility that can be raised by any State agent or non-State actor. Self-defence is sometimes designated as a “right”. There is inadequate legal support for such an interpretation. Self-defence is more properly characterized as a means of protecting the right to life and, as such, a basis for avoiding responsibility for violating the rights of another.

21. No international human right of self-defence is expressly set forth in the primary sources of international law: treaties, customary law, or general principles. While the right to life is recognized in virtually every major international human rights treaty, the principle of self-defence is expressly recognized in only one, the Convention for the Protection of Human
Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (European Convention on Human Rights), article 2.15 Self-defence, however, is not recognized as a right in the European Convention on Human Rights. According to one commentator, “The function of this provision is simply to remove from the scope of application of article 2 (1) killings necessary to defend against unlawful violence. It does not provide a right that must be secured by the State”.16

This should make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside about the wonderful "One World" that's coming up! Remember, don't pester the men with machetes when they come for you! And please, step quietly and orderly onto the railroad cars for the trip north; you'll just love the scenery!

Yeah, I posted this on the other forum. I posted this on a bunch of forums I frequent, because I want everyone to see the threat these idiots pose. If the Dems have their way, this will be our future, just as in England.

I vote we pack the UN up and send them to live and work in Bagdad, Iraq. Then we'll see what the UN definition changes to... [V]

I won't get into a political debate, but I will say this: I don't care whether it is an individual or nation, when you take away the means of self protection, they will be ruled by a dictator.

What a lot of folks do not realize is that the UN had a Conference on Small Arms this summer and if the NRA and the Bush Administration would not have been there, the outcome could have been disasterous to American gun owners. Many folks are upset at Bush, and I am not completely happy with him, but he is a far sight better than the ones who ran against him, and I just hope and pray the Dems do not win this Nov., or we could be in a world of hurt!

A great portion of the leaders in the world would be very happy with only the rich and the poor-to serve them----those ideas have been held throughout human history...that would do away with you and me-and the first step, historically, is to disarm the middle class and poor-be it sword, crossbow, or firearm. Anytime someone in gov't attempts to "deal with" a "problem" by removing or restricting an inanimate object instead of dealing with the behavior of the person using it-it's a "them and us" thing. One of the things I love about this forum is that most of the people who stay here quietly realize these things, have prepared to do their part to stop them, and , should Paul Revere ride tonight, would be there as at Lexington and Concord to meet them. There's a lot of comfort in that.

The reason I started loading in 1974 was, Sen. Ted K., failing to get our guns was going to try to outlaw ammo. Upside to that was I started loading and saving money. Downside was every time they tried disarm us, prices seem to go up.
