Does Central Europe really envision being ruled by the folks in Brussels?
The EU’s Advocate General says the top court should dismiss a challenge by the Czechs to resist the draconian EU gun directive.
– The Czech Republic filed a lawsuit arguing that the directive would just shift weapons to the black market and do nothing to increase security in the country, where hunting is a popular pastime and gun attacks are rare.
Czechia maintains that the European Commission rules are unduly restrictive for law-abiding gun-owners such as hunters. It also says the Commission rules encroached on crime prevention policy, a matter for the national governments of EU member states.
However, according to the Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston, “The court should dismiss the Czech Republic’s action in its entirety.”
Judges at the European Court of Justice follow the advice of their advocate generals in the majority of cases although they are not bound to do so.
* Czechs and others should follow the advice of their own national governments…not Eleanor Sharpton or any other activist with an agenda to push.
