The Czech Senate on Wednesday rejected a draft amendment to the constitutional bill on security that was aimed at allowing legal gun owners to use their weapons if called onto act in cases where members of the public were at risk.It said such a change was unnecessary and could be abused.
The draft amendment was submitted to the Senate by the previous chamber of deputies before October's general elections in reaction to the EU directive clamping down on firearms possession.
