Default How will Russias invasion effect gun ownership in the Ukraine?

Title says it. I was just thinking after reading this article http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/04/28/facing-crisis-with-russia-ukraine-scrambles-to-get-military-up-to-speed/
[quote]“People are very pro-Ukraine and anti-Russian. The west half of Ukraine is patriotic, similar to how most Americans are about America... Another interesting thing is how many Ukrainians want to get a gun license to buy guns for self-protection. They are jealous now to think that Americans can own guns and carry for self-protection. Most don't have the feeling that the military can protect them from Russia if and when they come,” he said.[quote]


I know this does not directly relate to those of us who are in the us, but should the Ukraine lax its gun laws (I doubt we would hear about it) it could be used as a point in an argument, countries are still invaded in the modern world. I cannot count how many times I have heard people say "Nobody gets invaded anymore".... I don't know, what are all of your opinions?

If a war escalates, I won't think you would need a permit. all for one, one for all.

Will not change much. The government may create a militia (for now it is the "national guard"), but not a free for all. The latter would mean arming both sides, and making it easier for the KGB to smuggle weapons into Ukraine. The individual liberties will have to wait. The country is in a state of emergency, in fact war in all but the name.

This really has no bearing on gun rights. Please take the topic to the politics controversy and religion subforum as the ukrane issue hits all three and has no bearing on issues with gun rights even in the ukrane.

Thanks
