This is to anyone who has ever believed the lies advanced by those who advocate for gun control. And the claim that giving up our weapons makes us safer is a lie. Statistics, anecdotal evidence and history all speak to this fact. So I do not wish to debate this point: it has already been settled as a universal truth. Rather, I wish to point to what is happening in Ukraine to hammer home this truth. Ukraine is in this position because it accepted the promise of protection from both Russia and the United States. In return for giving up its nuclear weapons, Russia and the U.S. promised to protect Ukraine from exactly what is happening to it now. See what trusting liars got them? Now, and be honest with yourself, do you really think Ukraine would be in this position if they still had control of their nuclear arsenal? Or do you think that would be enough to make Putin think many times before invading his neighbor?
