Tell me that I'm just a bit behind the curve and other people have been trumpeting this loudly from the rooftops.
Crimea had LOTZAGUNZ when they got annexed by Putin.
says that Ukraine (of which Crimea WAS a part) had something like 6+ gunz per person. And we're not talkin' bout single shot, bolt action .22 cal. "plinkerz*"; nosireebob, we're talkin' bout AK-47's and other military weppins--a fuckton or so of them.
I gotta do some more googlin' and Buddy the Wonderdog sez I need a walk** and so there's that. This might get more treatment later.
* According to at least one FBI source the round used most frequently for killin' people. The source is several years (or more) old so it may have changed, still....
** I have not, to date, had to kill anyone or even carry a Colt 1911 in my Kimber 4000183 CC holster. And Buddy never says "HooooooooooooooooooooAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!", neither.
