And yet there’s some good sense sometimes:
Czech government tells its citizens how to fight terrorists: Shoot them yourselves
Guns are easily available – I’ve sat having a beer with someone carrying a pistol for example. True, it had to be carried inside a case, not a holster etc, but the laws are sensibly lax:
The Czech 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.
Why shouldn’t the populace defend the populace?
