I’m sure you’ve been following the situation in Ukraine with at least some interest given the media coverage there. If you aren’t aware, there was an overthrow of the government there. However, it was not a bloodless coup. Dozens of protestors were killed by armed police during demonstrations.

Now, it seems, at least some Ukrainian citizens are recognizing why it is important to protect the citizenry’s right to keep and bear arms and are pushing to have an amendment added to their constitution that would protect that right.

According to Ukrainian Gun Owners,

Today every citizen of Ukraine understands why our country has hundreds of thousands of policemen. Last illusions were crushed when riot police used rubber batons and boots at the Independence Square on peaceful citizens.

After such actions we realize that it is not enough to only adopt the Gun Law.

As of today Ukrainian Gun Owners Association will start to work on the preparation of amendments to the Constitution, which will provide an unconditional right for Ukrainian citizens to bear arms.

People should have the right to bear arms, which will be put in written into the Constitution.

Authorities should not and will not be stronger than its people!

Armed people are treated with respect!
