Billlls Idle Mind has alerted me to an important development on the International Gun-front: What The Angry Peasants Want. Amazingly but not surprisingly, as soon as the Dictator du Jour had left Kleptocrat Mansion for his new Undisclosed Dacha-in Hiding (on the Volga?), the Rocket-n-Molotov Peeps sally forth with an amendment to their Constitution – being that The Ukrainian Gun Owners Association has released a statement saying thusly:
“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” (my emphasis)
So, let Sovereignty begin anew, congratulations Ukrainians!
