Så er det besluttet, Tjekkiet anlægger sag ved EU-domstolen mod EU grundet våbendirektivet, det besluttede regeringen i går.
Tjekkiet kræver direktivet kendt ugyldigt, da det indfører uforholdsmæssige ubekvemme foranstaltninger overfor våbenindehavere, og strider mod proportionalitetsprincippet og forbuddet mod forskelsbehandling.
Personligt tror jeg sagsanlægget desværre er en taber sag for tjekkerne, alligevel frydes jeg over en medlemsstat så højlydt markerer deres modstand. Tjekkerne var også eneste medlemsland der stemte imod direktivet i ministerrådet, med baggrund i det var for vidtgående. Luxembourg stemte ligeledes imod, men af diametralt modsatte årsager.
Prague to bring lawsuit against EU firearms directive
ČTK | 15 JUNE 2017
Prague, June 14 (CTK) - The Czech Republic will file a lawsuit against the EU directive restricting firearms possession with the European Court of Justice by mid-August, the government decided on Wednesday, supporting the proposal by Interior Minister Milan Chovanec, he has tweeted.
Prague will demand that the directive become invalid since it introduces disproportionate and inconvenient measures for arms holders, he said.
The lawsuit will argue that the directive violates the principles of proportionality and the ban on discrimination.
"Bringing a lawsuit solves nothing, but we have no other possibility... We cannot allow that the EU would disproportionately infringe on the position of the member states and their citizens under the pretext of fight with terrorism," Chovanec said in a press release.

Chovanec told CTK last week that the idea of drafting this directive in reaction to the terrorism wave was nonsensical and that he considered this argument a mere pretext.
The directive provoked a wave of protests in the Czech Republic.
The stricter conditions would afflict some 300,000 holders of firearm licences in the country as well as the owners of weapons modified for blank cartridges, such as those used for theatre or film purposes, that are not registered now.
