Will the Czech Republic Get a Second Amendment?

• Guns America Digest

For several years, conservatives in the Czech Republic's parliament have been pushing to add the right to armed self-defense as one of the "fundamental human rights and freedoms," according to David Harsanyi writing in National Review.

"The right to defend one's own life or the life of another person with a weapon is guaranteed under the conditions laid down by law," the proposed amendment reads.

Conservatives passed the amendment through the lower house of parliament, but it failed in the upper house. But now they've earned a majority in the senate, and the Czech government unexpectedly announced it would endorse the plan to add the language.
