Finland Encouraging Armed Citizens

From Bearing Arms:

Finland plans to open more than 300 new shooting ranges to encourage more citizens to take up the hobby in the interest of national defence.

It is hoped that shooting in the Nordic country – which last year became Nato’s newest member and which shares a 830-mile (1,330km) border with Russia – could become as popular as football or ice hockey.

Ukraine Understands The Need For Armed Civilians

From The Gazette:

Zablotsky tells me Ukrainians are overwhelmingly in favor of the right of individuals to keep and bear arms. Ukrainians are now allowed to make private gun purchases. Territorial defense units were formed by local communities and were handed out arms by the military.

Zablotsky is steering a movement to procure guns for Ukrainian civilians to make his country a safer place. They believe that every Ukrainian owning a firearm, and trained how to use it, is the best form of protection from any foreign invasion.

Ukrainian Politician Wants To Expand Gun Rights

From The Washington Times:

Months before the Russian invasion, Mr. Zablotskyy took on his country’s civilian gun-control system that was inherited from the former Soviet Union when he introduced a bill to allow private ownership of firearms.

“I tried to convince parliament. I was the sponsor of the bill that allowed the ownership of private firearms within Ukraine. Unfortunately, that bill has failed. And, largely, of course, due to the Russian lobby,” he told The Washington Times. “Now we, of course, understand why. I think that now there’s overwhelming support for the right of Ukrainians to bear arms.”

Independence Is All Or Nothing

From National Review:

It is obvious that Russia’s attempt to dictate to Ukraine what alliances it may join and what kind of foreign relations it may pursue is a limit on Ukrainian sovereignty. But it is also a limit on American sovereignty, British sovereignty, German sovereignty, French sovereignty, and the sovereignty of every other NATO country. An alliance is a two-way relationship, and if Moscow has the power to foreclose it on one end, it has the power to foreclose it on the other end. We must not cede such power to Moscow.

The US Should Sell Weapons To Any Country For Defense

From The Federalist:

For the record, I have consistently warned against American interventions and nation-building for more than 30 years. I agree with John Quincy Adams that America “goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.”

The Real World Demonstration of Why Gun Rights Are Human Rights

From The Federalist:

The world is captivated by Ukraine’s resistance to Russian invasion, especially since much of Ukraine’s resistance comes from ordinary citizens taking up arms in defense of their homeland.

Ukraine has a fighting chance in part because it has taken dramatic steps to provide its people firearms. More than 25,000 automatic rifles and 10 million rounds of ammunition have been distributed to volunteers in Kyiv.

Senator Obama Led Effort For Ukraine To Disarm

From Guns.com:

Elected in November 2004 to the seat held by U.S. Sen. Peter Fitzgerald, Obama’s banner freshman effort on Capitol Hill was to expand the Nunn – Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction concept – a disarmament program that destroyed Ukraine’s 1,240 nuclear warheads – to include conventional weapons like artillery, small arms, and tanks. As part of the move, Obama traveled to Eastern Europe just eight months after taking office, accompanying U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar to meet with Ukrainian officials about destroying their guns with America picking up the tab.

Learning The Wrong Lesson. For Gun Haters, Gun Control Can Solve Anything.

From The Press Herald:

But how do we start a debate about global gun control to put pressure on someone like Putin to stop waging wars on innocent people?

….everyone everywhere should start talking about demilitarizing the world, or guns will undoubtedly kill many more millions in many more cities.

Gun control will not stop tyrants. What stops tyrants is a citizenry that is armed and trained in those arms. When every citizen is a possible combatant/insurgent that makes tyrants and despots think twice about controlling their own people or invading another people. To prevent more atrocities we need gun proliferation across the world. Everyone on this planet should know how to use a gun even if they don’t like them. Knowledge is power and knowing how to use a gun is even more powerful.
