Volokh Correction #22: Ignoring "self-defense" as a derived principle

A UN report says (at point 20) that rather than being an independent, self-evident principle, self-defense should be derived from the right to life.

David Kopel at the Volokhs says of the report that it "quite explicitly says that personal self-defense is not a human right."

I'd expect better from Volokh bloggers who aren't Zywicki or Bernstein.
