Favorable article on self defense
The Memphis Commercial Appeal has an article favorable to self defense.
"People are scared, very scared," says Chris Fowler, 56, who co-owns Top Brass Sports. "And I understand."
He understands because he sees the looks on their faces.
When Vietnamese immigrants were being victimized in Parkway Village, many came to Top Brass for training -- so many, in fact, that Fowler brought in a Baptist missionary to serve as an interpreter.
"I've had Arabs, Pakistanis, Hispanics, and they're all U.S. citizens," Fowler says. "These people have stores, businesses. They've been robbed and they don't want to break the law."
Anyone in the U.S. Government or State Government that advocates gun control (the United Nations included!) also advocates GENOCIDE!
All Federal and State gun control laws, regardless of how reasonable they are professed to be or purport to be of a governmental interest, by their very nature violate 18 U.S.C. § 1091(a)(4) Genocide and Article 2(c) of the Genocide Convention. The governmental interest in gun control is the ways and means to commit genocide? That’s the dirty secret of gun cuntrol!

Norms of ‘jus cogens’ and Obligations ‘erga omnes’: A Revival of the Natural Law Tradition in International Law?
In international law, there are norms from which no derogation is permitted (jus cogens) and obligations binding on all States without exception, every State having an interest in their protection (erga omnes). What is the ultimate foundation of these categories of norms and obligations? Is it the will of the stronger States (or of a majority of them acting arbitrarily) or is it a higher moral law to which international law, like all human law, must conform? http://www.catholicsocialscientists.org/cssr2002/Abstract--Ragazzi.pdf
