American gun maker to send 2,500 AR-15s to Ukraine: ‘We’re just a passionate group of people’

As the Russian war against Ukraine continues, those who stayed behind to fight are in increasing need of supplies, and American gun manufacturer Adams Arms is answering the call.

“We’re just a passionate group of people, and when liberty or freedom is in jeopardy then you know, we take that personally. For us to be able to help has just been an overwhelming feeling, and I’m proud of my team,” Jason East, president of Adams Arms told Fox Business.

“The good thing about being a private business is, you know, government has bureaucracy and red tape. Sometimes it takes longer, you know, as a private company, we were able to react really, really quickly,” he continued.

This week will see the first of five shipments to Ukraine. The company admits that they will be losing somewhere in the neighborhood of $300,000 after all is said and done, but believe that it’s absolutely worth it just to help out.

The company has a history of business in the Ukraine, and has worked with gun distributors there before the Russian invasion. Once the smaller country found themselves under siege, they sent out an SOS as gun stores sold out almost immediately.

“It’s that demand that led them back to us. And said that they needed an immediate order. Our specific resource is still there in the area. He’s just outside of Kyiv. We talk with him almost on a daily basis. Some of his immediate family has left the country and gone to some neighboring areas within Europe, but he has chosen to stay there, you know, do his job, distribute weapons to civilians, and then join in the effort himself,” East revealed.

“The shipment was supposed to leave a couple of days before the Russian invasion. Obviously, after that happened, we weren’t able to fly within 100 miles of the Ukrainian border. And so ordinarily, to get a permit approved through the Department of Commerce is usually about a 30-day process for us. So we’re sitting here wondering what we were going to do, thankfully the Department of Commerce worked very quickly,” he added.

Adams Arms will reportedly be shipping the arms to Poland to make sure they are not intercepted before they can get into Ukrainian hands.
