Government considers new firearms registry

The Czech government is scheduled to discuss draft legislation by the Interior Ministry that would establish a computerized central registry of firearms. The current system is considered inaccurate which complicates the work of the police. The bill would among other things introduce stricter rules for the transportation of firearms and allow the police to control it. The legislation would also allow people to give up their firearms permit and at the same time prolong the permits’ validity from five to ten years.
