Senate confirms that the right to armed defense is constitutionally enshrined

The Senate has confirmed that the right to protect oneself and others with weapons is constitutionally enshrined in the Czech Republic within the scope of the Charter of Fundamental Rights.

The Czech President cannot refuse to change the Constitution and is expected to sign it. The Charter will include a clause that “even if you have a weapon, your right to protect your own life or the lives of others is guaranteed under the conditions stipulated by law.”

The amendment came from a petition signed by more than 100,000 people. The authors of the legislative amendment stated that their goal was to prevent this right from being restricted by common European Union law and to strengthen the Czech Republic’s position in further EU regulatory consultations.
