Previously permitted for sporting purposes such as target practice and hunting, Russians, the story claims, will now be lawfully allowed to carry guns for self defense.

I keep telling people that gun control is dead, but nobody believes me. The American idea of arming the peasants has now infected Russia. Once established, it is hard (impossible?) to turn it around.

Since liberty is closely connected to gun ownership, things are looking up in Russia.

"Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation.... Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." James Madison (The Federalist, No. 46)
