From the article:
"The Czech Republic already has some of the most lenient gun policies in Europe. It's home to about 800,000 registered firearms and 300,000 people with gun licenses. Obtaining a weapon is relatively easy: Residents must be 21, pass a gun knowledge check and have no criminal record. By law, Czechs can use their weapons to protect their property or when in danger, although they need to prove they faced a real threat.

I would guess that universal background checks here are OK then??? Oh wait also a test on gun knowledge and 21 to buy a gun. Aren't these lambasted all the time when proposed???

Similar to Iceland and Finland. But most folks in Iceland don't feel the need for a gun. Or all the paperwork involved in obtaining one. I had an ATF buddy I knew who retired and moved to Finland. Ain't heard from
him in awhile. But when he first got there he emailed me and said it was one blanket registration for his guns.

And one of those was an STG44. I helped him find original mags for it in Europe. And a guy who was
converting H&K 93 mags to work in them. He said they worked just fine at a reasonable cost.
And that guy was Czech.
