I doubt anyone reading this missed the fact the Ukraine government was handing out as many rifles to its citizens as it could when the invasion unfolded. This, while the Liberal government works hard at disarming us. I think Ukraine figured out the importance of a nation of riflemen to a country’s defence much too late, but I’m guessing they have the message now.
