the Czechs don't give a crap.
Now the country's interior ministry is pushing a constitutional
change that would let citizens use guns against terrorists. Proponents
say this could save lives if an attack occurs and police are delayed or
unable to make their way to the scene. To become law, Parliament must
approve the proposal; they'll vote in the coming months.
Republic already has some of the most lenient gun policies in Europe.
It's home to about 800,000 registered firearms and 300,000 people with
gun licenses. Obtaining a weapon is relatively easy: Residents must be
21, pass a gun knowledge check and have no criminal record. By law,
Czechs can use their weapons to protect their property or when in
danger, although they need to prove they faced a real threat.
Which makes them like here: you have to demonstrate real fear for your life to use lethal force.
After months of contentious negotiations, the EU passed a compromise
last month; the Council of Ministers will confirm the measure this
spring. All member states will have 15 months to comply with the new gun
List of GFW wishes follows.
Anyone else get the feeling that, much like some countries saying "Screw you" and building fences, the EUnuchs are going to have problems enforcing this in some places?
