The embattled citizens of Ukraine learned the hard way that when only the government has guns, there is tyranny and bloodshed. The Ukrainian Gun Owners Association is now pushing for a constitutional amendment recognizing the right to bear arms:
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!
It’s stunning that anti-gun Democrats are attempting to destroy our own right to be arms at the very moment it’s importance is being proven in Ukraine, Columbia, Mexico, and other nations where the government is either failing to protect the people, or is actively seeking to oppress them through the force of arms.
Never surrender your right to bear arms. When you do, liberty is lost, and you are no longer a citizen.
