If Democrats are anything, they are massive hypocrites who chose to ignore their own positions and demands when it is politically and culturally convenient for them to do so — especially when it comes to the subject of American Second Amendment rights.

If the party of the Marxist left had their way, no American citizen would be allowed to own firearms of any kind — because Marxists, by their very nature, are authoritarians who don’t want the people they rule over to have any effective means of opposing them.

Suddenly though, in their rush to embrace Ukraine’s effort to beat back a Russian invasion, the anti-gun Democrats cheering for Kyiv have conveniently ignored the fact that the government of President Voloydymyr Zelenskyy is passing out thousands of fully automatic weapons to civilians — who only have to produce a valid ID to get one.

Seems the Ukrainians have now learned the value of an armed populace, which American gun owners have known for more than two centuries.

According to The Machine Gun Nest Blog:

This is a huge development that has largely been (unsurprisingly) ignored by the corporate media. We know the reason why; the Ukrainians are about to demonstrate to the world why the founding fathers of the United States enshrined the right to keep and bear arms in the constitution, right after the right to speak freely, no less.

On Wednesday, the Ukrainian parliament passed “Law #5708 on the Right to Civilian Firearms”. A spokesperson for the Ukrainian government was very clear about the purpose, saying: “This bill is to ensure that every citizen receives the sacred right to self-defense.”

So why is it that this movement to expand gun rights has been largely ignored by the media?

The American corporate media, with few exceptions, behaves as nothing more than propaganda outlets for the Democratic Party, so given that fact, it isn’t hard to understand why the likes of ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and their print allies won’t acknowledge the importance of an armed citizenry. The fact that most Ukrainians were barred from owning firearms no doubt factored into Vladimir Putin’s and his generals’ invasion plans. It’s possible, too, that Putin and his commanders never imagined the Ukrainian government would actually issue citizens guns with which to fight the invading forces.

“The same people that have told American gun owners that their AR15s would be ‘useless’ against a government armed with nuclear weapons and F-15 Jets would have to explain why ACTUAL ‘weapons of war’ (not semi-automatic sporting rifles like the AR15) are being given out to citizens to fight off a tyrannical invader,” the blog noted further.

“According to reports from Interior Minister Denys Monastyrsky, as of Feb 26th, 2022, over 25,000 automatic rifles, 10 million bullets, and an unknown number of RPGs have been given to civilians” — RPGs being rocket-propelled grenades.

In a piece published in the New York Post, a Ukrainian lawyer turned combatant is quoted as saying: “We always look at the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It is not just about self-protection but the protection of freedom and independence. We Ukrainians really show this meaning of the Second Amendment.”

Another factor influencing the decision to hand out weapons to civilians: Ukraine has actually been fighting a Russian proxy war since 2014, shortly after Moscow ‘annexed’ the Crimea and fomented an uprising in the country’s eastern Donbas region.

Several Twitter users noted they took screengrabs of tweets like these for future use because, again, Democrats are monumental hypocrites and it won’t be long before these same yahoos start screaming for more bans of “weapons of war” in the U.S.

Oh, and the corporate media will cheer them on as well.
