"by Chris Tomlinson29 Jun 20175845 Czech lawmakers have passed legislation in the lower parliament that would see the right to bear firearms enshrined in the country’s constitution in a move directed against tighter regulations from the European Union. The legislation was passed with 139 deputies agreeing to the amendment to the constitution with only nine deputies voting against. The amendment will now be considered by the Czech Senate where it will require a supermajority of three-fifths of the members in order to pass into law, Die Presse reports.
Similar to the U.S. second amendment to the Constitution, which gives Americans the right to keep and bear arms, the Czech legislation reads: “Citizens of the Czech Republic have the right to acquire, retain and bear arms and ammunition.”
The amendment also notes that the right is there to ensure the safety of the country, similar to the provision of a “well-regulated militia” in the American amendment."
The Czechs of all people truly understand the importance of the rights of the people to own firearms as being essential to their being able to protect both their liberties and their freedoms.
If any of you here on the CF are unfamiliar with the Czech revolt against the USSR in 1956, shame on you. You need to know that part of history!
Yes, us Slovaks love our firearms ..
More accurately, what you love are liberty and freedom!
that among all else .. ^^^ and all three go hand in hand
With out the first one, the second two can't exist.
