To those who question the intent or thought put into the 2nd Amendment, what’s happening in Ukraine should provide you with the answers you are looking for.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was asked to evacuate Kyiv on Friday, and his response was legendary:
“The fight is here, I need ammunition, not a ride.”
You talk about a total about-face. In the past couple of weeks, the Ukrainian government has gone from limiting gun ownership to encouraging gun ownership.
“Ukraine’s parliament on Wednesday voted to approve in the first reading a draft law which gives permission to Ukrainians to carry firearms and act in self-defense,” Reuters reported.

The Second Amendment was not written so you could go hunting. It was written so anyone could have the ability to protect themselves from an invader. An invader comes in many forms, ranging from the thug who tries to enter your house to the dictator attempting to invade your country. Either way, a gun is one of the few ways to even the odds and give you a chance for survival.
Invader = to enter forcefully as an enemy; go into with hostile intent.
The 2nd Amendment is about having the means to protect ourselves and our freedoms. Hopefully, the Ukrainians did not learn too late that private gun ownership is in everyone’s best interest.
