Proposed RKBA in Ukraine

Ukraine has a gun owners' association. I didn't know that.

This week, they've proposed a bill that should seem very familiar to us:

Everyone has the right to freedom of owning a firearm to protect their life and health, housing and property, life and health of other people's constitutional rights and freedoms in the case of usurpation of power, the encroachments on the constitutional order, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. Exercising the right to free possession of firearms is governed by applicable law and may be limited only by the court on the individual.
That's Google translation at work. If anyone has better knowledge of Cyrillic, feel free to correct it.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.

Thanks Tom...

Interesting as I have been watching the events the last few months there, and have been thinking of traveling back in a few months. I wonder how this will play out over time? I know there is evidently some level of firearm ownership there as some people in Kiev where seen with shotguns during the recent evens. What restrictions do they have now and how likely will this improve the situation?

It is good to see other people fighting for their freedoms, even if they aren't American.
