EU-friendly government unlikely to grant actual freedoms

The question of how much the Ukrainian revolution was a grass roots effort versus being driven by external influences will be put to the test by a demand from some Ukrainian citizens that a right to bear arms be included in the country’s new constitution.
Citing how riot police used force to crush dissent during the recent uprising, the Ukrainian Gun Owner’s Association has announced that it 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!” states the press release.
Whether the newly formed Ukrainian government (which will almost inevitably be comprised of EU-friendly puppets) will allow Ukrainians the bedrock freedom of the right to bear arms seems highly unlikely given Europe’s restrictive firearms laws.
Current Ukrainian law only allows people to own pistols or revolvers if they are licensed and can provide a “genuine reason” for needing to own a gun.
One of the proposed amendments to the constitution which would legalize the right to bear arms states;
“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. “
Good luck to Ukrainians attempting to secure actual freedoms in the aftermath of a revolution which was in fact more of a coup d’état that will replace one dictator with a more western-compliant dictator. We won’t be holding our breath.
