Under the theory that everyone ... Even nations ... Have a Right to self-defense: YES

The way world politics is set up now, no. The United Nations has to approve a country for nuclear capabilities. The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (“NPT”) aims to avert the danger of nuclear war through the prevention of the wider dissemination of nuclear weapons and other measures. The NPT was opened for signature on 1 July 1968 and entered into force on 5 March 1970.

As for it should be a right? IMO, not at all. I actually believe all nuclear weapons should be destroyed and banned. I am old enough and have been around long enough to know that is never going to happen.

It went well. Spent Christmas Eve with my extended family and Christmas afternoon with the in-laws. We have been doing upgrades to our house as well. Today it all hit me and I slept most of the day. Tomorrow we have another dinner to go to.

I believe every sovereign nation has (or should have) the right to self-determination, as long as it doesn't adversely impact other countries, humanity, or the sustainability of the Earth.

Yes, I guess Walt is right. When you really think about it, who's to say who can have them and who can't? Scary, but true.

Once again, UN rights

Article 3.

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

I guess if someone else has them, then you can have them to feel secure?

A very dodgy question for, in the community of nations, not all members are equal and, certainly, not all are equally responsible.

No matter who has it the possibility for misuse and world annihilation is high. The US is mostly responsible, but would they have been equally responsible under a Barry Goldwater presidency? And would you want a buffoon like Donald Trump to have the final word?

The problems were covered, with some humour, back in the 1960s by no less a person than Tom Lehrer.

I'm very surprised in people's attention to him.
Outright demeaning to women.
Viciously mocking a visibly handicapped person.
Noot to mention what I said about outright lying stirring up haters stand up against Muslims.
80% of the mass murders have been American white males.
He's like Hilter 😝

As far as i know it needs profiling and a process to proceed to get into it's development.

For instance, I know Japan banned about so many army and bomb development after what happened in Pearl Harbor.

Today UN must decide it's qualification. Everyone might have the right but under circumstances and considerations. 

And on the opposite of most opinions. My personal believe is No not everyone must have it's right. I'm not willing to get into details of why i think this way. But no everyone deserve it and it's not safe that everyone own such a thing. This is more than just a simple self defence.
