Indonesia hands death sentence to Islamic State-linked cleric for militant attacks

He killed Muslim police officers. That’s why he got the death penalty. If he had killed some infidels in a club in Bali he would be out of jail already.

Czechs Hit Back Against EU Crackdown on Legal Gun-Owners: ‘Free Countries Don’t Disarm Their Citizens’

Czech president Miloš Zeman has put his name to a petition opposing an EU diktat which would clamp down on legal gun-owners and backed a constitutional amendment which would guarantee citizens’ right to keep arms for self-defence and protection of the homeland.
