Human Rights and the U.N.

Last month the United Nations declared internet access to be a human right. Then an op-ed article on Forbes came out urging gun owners to oppose the U.N.’s global “Small Arms Treaty”. From the United Nations website:

Increasingly, it is understood that social and economic development can only take off if people feel safe in their communities. This concept brings together issues of disarmament and development in an exciting new way.

If I’m reading this correctly, the U.N. advocates civilian disarmament in an attempt to make individuals in communities feel safer. I have no idea how the U.N. reconciles that advocacy when Article 3 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”
