Czech Republic Parliament Passes Constitutional Right to Bear Arms
In a move toward freedom and democracy, the Czech Republic had passed a constitutional right to bear arms.
In an attempt to move against tight European Union regulations, lawmakers in the Czech Republic have written and passed legislation in lower parliament that allows a constitutional right to bear firearms. According to Breitbart, the regulation passed with 139 deputies’ votes and only 9 against. The next step for the law is to be voted on by the Czech Senate. In order to pass here, the law will need 3/5 of the members to be in favor.
The legislation, similarly to the U.S. second amendment, reads:
“Citizens of the Czech Republic have the right to acquire, retain and bear arms and ammunition.”
But this legislation doesn’t mean then end to regulations on firearms, Breitbart explains:
Whilst the new law will enshrine the right for Czech citizens to purchase and own firearms, members of the public will still need to acquire a weapons certificate.
Interior Minister Milan Chovanec said the new legislation was directly aimed at an EU directive from March which sought to prohibit semi-automatic firearms and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds for pistols and 20 rounds for long guns.
“We do not want to disarm our own people at a time when the security situation is constantly worsening,” Chovanec said.
Andrej Babis, expected to become the next Czech prime minister, completely rejected mass migration this week commenting: “We have to fight for what our ancestors built here. If there will be more Muslims than Belgians in Brussels, that’s their problem. I don’t want that here. They won’t be telling us who should live here.”
