    Czech President: We Needs to Expand Weapon Accessibility for Citizens

    Czech citizens should have more possibilities to purchase weapons amid the increased terrorist threat in Europe, Czech President Milos Zeman said Sunday.

    Eastern Europe 'Flooding' Middle East Battlefields With Weapons


    PRAGUE (Sputnik) — The president added that those in possession of guns would have to get used to protecting themselves instead of keeping weapons at home.
    "Earlier I spoke against possession of large amounts of weapon [by the citizens]. After those [terrorist] attacks, I do not think so any more," Zeman said in an interview with the Czech Blesk newspaper.
    Europe has been pushed to urgently and extensively boost its safety and security measures over the past months amid a wave of deadly attacks that has occurred in Europe, including a truck running over a crowd in France's Nice and a suicide bombing near an open-air music festival in German Ansbach.

    Having my roots in that part of the world I can tell you about the pulse of those countries (you've probably read some of my posts on the matter).

    Poland, Hungary, The Czech Republic, Slovakia are all very conservative Christian countries that are nationalistic and very against the Muslim hordes and the lefty attitude of Merkel and the EU. Many united rallies and comments from these countries against Muslims have pissed off the EU, but E. Europe's economy and strength continues to grow as the EU cucks itself to savages.

    Unlike in the UK and Germany and others, there is no "hate speech" you can be locked up for, and pro-conservative nationalism is popular. Besides being conservative and pro-American values, many of these countries are also very pro-gun.

    The Czech president is pretty based, btw. Here is a quote he made on our degenerative liberalism:

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

      I 'm not so sure about the rest but Slovakia is rather restrictive when it comes to gun control. It might not be too far fetched to make the analogy that Slovakia makes New York look like the Wild West. And while the government calls itself a democracy I think conservative socialism is deeply grounded in their system.

        You have to remember that gun culture is very strong in these countries. My grandfather fought Nazis in WWII and had his arms shot through by a tank gunner, my great uncle escaped a concentration camp before he fled to Brooklyn and started businesses there, my dad was conscripted in the communist army when he turned 18 and used Polish Tantals on a regular basis. It is only the youngest generation now, especially in college and city centers that are more liberal and globalist. And Poland, for instance is the third largest military force fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan today alongside the US after UK and Australia (not Germany, not France, etc.). Chris Kyle spoke highly about the GROM special forces in his book.

        The usage of guns and them being implements of liberty is very much on the mind of the people of E. Europe, the vast majority being conservative, religious people, and proud of their heritage (by contrast to the EU's Globalist lefty Western Europe).

        And despite the laws on the books, you can easily find WWII caches of guns in the countryside and shoot AKs without anyone "calling it in".

          Perhaps the military history is rich but the guns laws are still very restrictive. I' agree among the Eastern European nations, perhaps the Czech Republic is the best of the bunch..and even then that's not saying much. It's been on their books for quite some time that private gun ownership is a restricted privilege and not a protected right. I won't guess at whats cached secretly and not declared but I know private ownership is less than 20% and probably much closer to something along the lines of 15%. And pretty much all but forget about private ownership of semi autos. Every thing is by non guaranteed special permit and authorization only and those rates are even lower. Yeah its probably somewhat easier to acquire and own a field gun..whoopie!

          My parents escaped from what was then Czechoslovakia after two failed attempted, rifle butts to the face by the border patrol and imprisonment. All this before I was born.

            I didn't get my point across well. It's not just a military history (my grandfather, though a solider, was part of the civilian uprising under the occupation). It's that due to the history of occupation and conflict only a few generations fresh (I mean democracy is relatively new after the wall fell) which guns were greatly a factor, and viewed instruments of liberation. But that military history and the use of guns was a huge part of the culture until the wall fell (which in historic terms wasn't that long ago). Everyone who turned 18 was conscripted, much like in Israel, and had to deal with guns, thus normalizing them.

            Everyone knows someone involved --it's still a few generations fresh--so socially, the "guns are bad" liberal view you see in the West doesn't compute. In conservative nationalistic countries which are very anti-EU/Merkel the idea of guns for self preservation is very strong. Regarding personal ownership gun laws, sure there are some restrictive laws in some countries but what's on the books and the de facto reality is two different things in E. Europe. And you're right, those laws still have a long way to go to catch up with the generally pro-gun (or gun accepting and understanding) views of the people.

              OK!..this makes a lot more sense Presently it's still quite restrictive in terms of ownership however its slowly changing from what it was asa member nation of the communist bloc. The title of the article is the ultimate tell in terms of perspective...."should be given expanded access to " . I read that as government regulations easing as opposed to " should freely exercise the right to"

                Good thing the UK is leaving the EU, Theresa May was the one pushing the EU semi auto ban. I hear Czech Republic has some AR manufacturers.

                  Part of me wants to make a flyer of this quote and pass it to everybody I see.

                  The other part of me wants to tell the Czech President to shove it up his ass and STFU about my country and countrymen.

                    I hear you. He's a pretty outspoken guy--often a little crude like Trump--but the context was he was asked pertaining to American relations, etc.

                    I don't particularly care for the guy but he's a goldmine of controversial quotes. He actually attends anti-Muslim rallies in his country.

                    In many E. European countries Obama is widely detested. Most had a very strong relationship with President G.W. Bush--Poland in particular committing a ton of troops to Iraq/Afghanistan (more than France, Germany) and the missile defense system against Russia. Poland is a very pro-American country, for instance waving American flags and giving wreaths of flowers to US troop convoys coming through in recent years, while in France and Germany the lefties pelted them with rotten tomatoes. One of the first things Obama did when taking office was scrapping the missile defense system and throwing Poland under the bus. There's no love lost. Even Putin has often been caught on the mike referring to O as a "monkey".

                    In any case this all stems from a very different social outlook that conservative E. Europe has vs. the EU lefty Western Europe and this is boiling now that more terrorist attacks occur and the EU is reeling. This group of E . European countries have all been outspoken against the EU and refuse to take on Muslim refugees.
