Shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine, the government in Kiev began arming its citizens. If they had already been armed, would it have made a difference? Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at the advantage the U.S. has in having an armed citizenry, including the importance of the Second Amendment. We need that amendment because we didn't ever want to have to fight off a major world power again to gain our freedom. Plus, having millions of armed citizens is most likely why no other power has tried to invade us. He also advocates for bringing back a well-regulated militia – a controversial idea to the left but an important one to discuss.
Russia has invaded Ukraine. John managed to contact Reuben Johnson, our source on the ground in Ukraine's capital, Kyiv. Reuben discusses the reality of the situation there: the backed up roadways, the nightly curfews, the military vehicles grinding their way through town. He and John have a casual, non-interview-type conversation between two friends about the real-life conditions in a country being invaded by a superpower. Please pray for Reuben and the people of Ukraine as they endure this military onslaught.
