Do you view a nation as the same as a single person?
The 2nd Amendment covers a basic unalienable right that an individual has in order to protect it from our government. So, IMO if you were arguing on
behalf of individual Iranians, then yes, an individual Iranian absolutely has the basic right of self defense. However, Iran does not recognize our
COTUS, so their government does whatever it feels necessary, and the basic rights of its citizens are oppressed or upheld as it desires. I doubt any
of them are much allowed their basic right to self-defense.
And if we are extending that argument out and calling nukes weapons of self defense, should individual American citizens be allowed to have them?
