EU Big Brother Demands Stricter Gun Laws amidst Terror Attacks


EU states have reached an agreement on stricter gun controls following a wave of attacks which have terrorized Europe over the past two years. The move aims to limit the means by which extremists could obtain deadly weapons legally.

The EU Commission announced that 28 members reached a political agreement with the European Parliament to tighten gun control laws which have been in place since 1991. The debate on stricter gun control measures has persisted since 2015, following the Paris attacks, which left 130 people dead.

“After a year of discussions, the European Parliament and Council have reached a provisional political agreement on the Firearms Directive,” the commission said in a press release.

The main changes to the Firearms Directive include placing a ban on semi-automatic firearms.
