MOSCOW, June 29 (Itar-Tass) —— A bill for a tougher control over the arms in possession of individuals and legal persons was moved in the State Duma on Friday.
The amendments, which are offered to introduce in the law on weapons, particularly envisage a ban on the sale of parts for civil guns, components of cartridges to people, which do not nave proper gun licenses.
The ban is expected to prevent people from loading cartridges in unregistered guns on their own and making guns from the bought parts themselves.
Meanwhile, the amendments envisage a ban on the use of civil weapons of self-defence to the officers of the private security agencies in the performance of their official duties of guarding the property. This measure will make it possible to rule out an opportunity to use these guns by the security guards, which do not have a gun license, and will also rule out an opportunity for them to use the guns against the third persons and finally will prevent them from using personal guns in the settlement of legal disputes at the guarded facilities.
“The fulfilment of the provisions initiated in the bill will contribute to a lower number of offences, which are committed and forecast in the arms sale,” an explanatory note to the document said.
The author of the legislative initiative LDPR deputy Andrei Lugovoy noted that the enforcement of this bill will not require additional expenses from the federal budget.
