The Czech Republic’s Lower House has voted by a large majority (139 of 200) to allow Czech citizens to use their firearms in support of the State; loosely translated as “Folks can help out by shooting at terrorists”. And although this still needs two thirds of the Senate to become law, the President, Milos Zeman, is apparently quite excited to sign the bill.
The draft states: “This constitutional bill is in reaction to the recent increase of security threats, especially the danger of violent acts such as isolated terrorist attacks … active attackers or other violent hybrid threats.” It is a direct response to the ever-growing terrorist threat in Europe; many countries have had attacks, and there is a strong argument that the death tolls would have been lower in many cases if citizens were armed and “legally allowed” to respond.
There are already plenty of guns in the Czech Republic (mostly for hunting), with more than 380,000 licensed firearms owners out of a population of 10.6 million. This is one of the most gun-friendly nations in a European Union that is doing as much as it can to criminalize gun ownership.
