As American Statists Work To Destroy Gun Rights, Embattled Ukrainian Citizens Demand A Version Of The Right To Bear Arms

America’s Founders so understood the importance of the right to bear arms as a great equalizer between the political power structure and the general populace that they included the right in the 2nd Amendment to the supreme law of the land.

Today, far removed from the bloody war for American independence, the sanctity of that right is lost on certain factions of the Nation’s population, and they are working overtime to destroy it.

Meanwhile, some of Ukraine’s citizens, currently battling an oppressive government, are calling for a version of America’s 2nd Amendment to be added to their constitution.

According to some watchers of the violence unfolding in Ukraine, between 70 and 100 protestors were murdered in the past week by government thugs and snipers seeking to quell the rising tide of dissidence in the country.

And as the country’s disenfranchised masses continue to take to the streets in protest of government that fails to properly represent the will of the people, Ukrainian officials are likely to continue killing protestors with little threat of retribution from an armed populace.

That’s because, according to Gunpolicy.org, long before the political unrest reached its climax in the country legislation was produced to require anyone who wished to own a firearm to “prove genuine reason to possess a firearm, for example, hunting, target shooting, collection, personal protection, security.”

Currently, the rate of private gun ownership in Ukraine (legal and illegal) is only about 6.6 firearms per 100 people.

Compare that to the gun-loving United States’ 101.05 firearms per 100 people.

This week, the Ukrainian Gun Owners Association took the advice of America’s Founders and called for increased gun rights for the nation’s citizens.

The group announced via press release:

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!

As the United States’ political machine increasingly demonstrates a will to operate as an entity over the people, rather than for and by the people, during an era when populist revolt against bad governance is occurring with increasing frequency around the globe, is there any question about what’s truly behind American statists’ efforts to destroy gun rights?

Just ask a Ukrainian.

Sam Rolley Staff writer Sam Rolley began a career in journalism working for a small town newspaper while seeking a B.A. in English.

After learning about many of the biases present in most modern newsrooms, Rolley became determined to find a position in journalism that would allow him to combat the unsavory image that the news industry has gained.

He is dedicated to seeking the truth and exposing the lies disseminated by the mainstream media at the behest of their corporate masters, special interest groups and information gatekeepers.

I as you know Tot am a Liberal Democrat. I support the 2nd Amendment for the rights of citizens to bear arms. Got a few myself of varying calibers. I just do not, along with many others, want weapons, particularly assault rifles in the hands of deranged individuals. Liberals do not want to take away all your guns. Just the ones capable of inflicting massive casualty counts. Like those at Sandy Hook and Clumbine, work places, malls, dock yards, playgrounds and movie theatres.

@Tot. Nuther question...and don't forget amongst all the firefights and back and forth dust ups tween us...I DID take the time to tell you how to cut and paste, and most recently, how to send mail.

So, I will ask once again, considering, your financial footing: WHERE should I put my $$$$$? Send a private message if you like. I will not use it as an opportunity to throw rocks at you. I promise.

BTW regarding the guns I am specifically referring to Automatic Assault Rifles. Why does anyone need one of those?

sebekm commented on Friday, Feb 28, 2014 at 22:38 PM

They think they need them to "fight off Obama when he comes to take their guns away." To me, it's paranoia - plain and simple. Nobody needs an arsenal of automatic weapons, armor-piercing rounds, 40-round magazines, grenade launchers, mortars, etc., to feel safe and secure in their home and in their person.

If they do, it's time to visit Mental Health.

When I was a child we all felt safe in our homes no matter how meager our situation.

In those days a man's home was his castle.

We didn't even have locks on the doors until about the early seventies.

Times have certainly changed.

And I remain convinced that the young of my generation who became liberals caused the decline of personal responsibility and discipline.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Mar 01, 2014 at 11:08 AM

Tot: Manic Bi-Polar individuals share at times the same sense of assurance regarding their personal convictions.

On another hand, it appears you need to come to terms with the fact that YOU and others of your 'old school' generation musta FAILED in passing down your concept of personal responsibility and discipline to your young.

What happened wid that?

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Mar 01, 2014 at 13:57 PM

Not only did you NOT pass it all down...you evidently utterly failed at convincingly SHARING it amongst your peers!!!???
