Czech citizens are getting a Second Amendment of their own... against terrorists.

The Czech Republic already has lenient gun laws. Applicants must; have no criminal record, prove they are over 21, and pass a firearms questionnaire.

As a result, more than 300, 000 Czechs are licensed to carry a gun. There are over 800,000 firearms registered in the country.

Last week, the Czech Government announced proposals to amend the Constitution, to grant individuals the right to use their weapons against terrorists.

Interior Minister Milan Chovanek, who introduced the bill, is confident the bill will pass before the October elections.

The proposal is pretty simple. The state cannot respond to a terrorist attack quickly enough to ensure public safety. 

But free, armed individuals can. This constitutional law would give them the legal authority to do so.

If only more people realized the fact that government will not always be there to protect us. Free people need to be able to defend themselves from vigilantes. Terrorists and crazy people attack gun free zones for a reason.

This development in the Czech Republic is worth following, and advancing. It not only provides the public safety, but also the individual the freedom he deserves.

After all, how can a “free” state exist when individual citizens are enslaved to the tyrannical will of organized aggressors? It cannot.

Those who nourish the hope that it will be possible to keep central government free of the corrupting tendencies of power and to staff it with a freedom-loving elite, overestimate the virtues of both the electorate and the elected, and underestimate the normative power of structural processes even over well-intended functionaries.
