The minister of the interior, Milan Chovanec, says a shooting incident on Tuesday has raised questions about whether too many people in the Czech Republic possess guns. A 63-year-old man who held licenses for two weapons shot eight people dead at a pub in the town of Uherský brod before taking his own life. Mr. Chovanec told the Prima TV station that Czechs would have to consider whether they wanted so many gun license holders in their society. According to the most recent statistics, from 2013, there are around 750,000 legally held hand guns in the Czech Republic.
