Russia has toughened responsibility for violating the rules of arms trafficking


In Russia, amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses (CAO) have come into force, making the liability for failure to comply with the rules for the circulation of weapons more stringent.

Thus, the new edition sets out article 20.10 “Illegal manufacture, sale or transfer of pneumatic weapons”, it is given a new name – “Illegal manufacture, acquisition, sale, transfer, storage, transportation, transportation, carrying or use of weapons, main parts of firearms and cartridges for weapons “. We are talking about those cases when “the actions do not contain a criminal offense”.

Now, for these violations, citizens are supposed to be fined up to 10 thousand rubles with possible confiscation of weapons, or administrative arrest from 5 to 15 days. For officials, a fine of up to 50 thousand rubles or disqualification of up to 3 years with a possible confiscation of weapons is imposed. For legal entities – fines of up to 500 thousand rubles or suspension of work for up to 60 days, also with the possible confiscation of weapons.

In this case, a person who voluntarily surrendered weapons, the main parts of firearms and cartridges for weapons is released from administrative responsibility.

Separately spelled out the norm of violation of the requirements of the legislation on weapons in the event of a meeting, meeting, demonstration, procession, picketing, religious ceremony and ceremony, cultural and entertainment, sports or other public event. Here, participants will face a fine of up to 5 thousand rubles and also confiscation of weapons or deprivation of the right to acquire, store and carry them for up to three years.

Violation of the rules for storing initiating and flammable substances and materials (gunpowder, primers) for self-equipping cartridges for civilian long-barreled firearms will entail a fine for citizens in the amount of 500 to 2 thousand rubles with or without confiscation of initiating and flammable substances and materials (gunpowder, primers) such.

In addition, a rule is added that ignoring the instructions of the Rosgvardia officers conducting control in the field of arms trafficking may entail an administrative fine for citizens with possible confiscation of weapons or deprivation of the right to acquire, store and carry them.

So, failure to comply with a legal requirement or obstruction of the activities of an employee of the National Guard of the Russian Federation, exercising state supervision in the field of arms circulation, entails an administrative fine for citizens from 5 thousand to 10 thousand rubles with possible confiscation of weapons and cartridges or deprivation of the right to arms for a period of one year up to two years. For officials, the fine will be from 10 thousand to 50 thousand rubles, or disqualification for a period of one to three years, for legal entities – from 100 thousand to 500 thousand rubles, or suspension of their activities for up to 30 days.
