Ukraine Gun Rights

The Ukraine Gun Owners Association wants the new government to add their own right to bear arms to the country’s constitution.

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 gathered in Independence Square in Kiev after President Viktor Yanukovich rejected a European Union trade deal for a $15 billion bailout from Russia in November. It was relatively peaceful for three months, but violence escalated on February 18. Over 70 people died during the week and amateur videos showed snipers shooting at unarmed protesters.
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!

America’s founding fathers implemented the second amendment because it is a natural right for people to defend themselves.
According to GunPolicy.org, Ukraine’s gun laws are described as restrictive. The government owns seven million guns while there are only three million guns for private citizens. A citizen must prove they have a legitimate reason to own a firearm.

      nothing will stop until we get rid of the Demorat controlled Senate…and maybe not even then with Boehner running the House.

      • foxxybey

        Have to get rid of the RINO’s also.

    If you check Ukraine’s history, you will see that they were always against Russian and Soviet rule, that they have always admired the US Constitutional Republic and always expressed a desire for similar freedom! Go Ukraine.

    If I were there I would vote for it and make sure it was worded so down the road a gang of anti constitution idiots wouldn’t attempt to take it away.

    we need to maintain our 2nd amendment to protect our love ones who do not have guns of their own to protect themselves

    • Don, we need to maintain our 2nd amendment right to keep tyranny at bay.

        We need media personalities to protect Americans and expose fraud. Your media does not show an interest in Americans but ride the coat tails of other organizations who fraud the American people. I am sure you make a pretty good living with your site and being a professional do nothing.

    One truly can not trust anyone be it Democrat or Republican. I’m wondering if it might be better for a third party and no not Independents……. First and foremost the rules for The President and Congress should be forced to honor their “Oath Of Office”. And TREASON is punishable by DEATH. If those that goes into politics needs to know straight up what is expected of them.

    Note: before the communist oppressors/butchers took over Russia, the Russian people were the most heavily armed society in the world. Knives and guns were common everywhere. The communists knew that armed citizens were a threat to their power, they took all weapons and than made sure no one had weapons except government controlled police or the military.
    when guns go, freedom follows

    The RIGHT to defend yourself and Family comes from GOD not government!
    (But it still a good idea to put to paper for the lawyers)

    You can bet the EU and Obama admin would put restrictions on aid if the Ukraine ever considered adopting such a constitution.
