Czech president calls for arming citizens to defend against terrorism...

Demand for firearms surges throughout Europe

Czech President MiloŇ° Zeman has completely reversed his stance on gun control in light of the recent terrorist attacks in Europe, calling for a new law that would allow citizens to be armed to defend themselves against jihadists.

Having previously been against private gun ownership, Zeman now says “citizens should arm themselves” to deal with the threat of terrorism.

“Earlier I spoke often about limiting the ability to have large quantities of weapons. But after the terrorist attacks, I have changed the idea,” Zeman told Blesk.cz.

Zeman also called for a fence to be built along the country’s border “if there were a large inflow of illegal migrants,” while also urging failed asylum seekers to be deported more quickly.

“Condemning terror attacks is easy, the only solution is doing away with the causes,” said Zeman. Full story...
