State Duma deputies adopted a law strengthening state control over the circulation of weapons. According to the adopted changes, licenses for weapons will not be issued to Russians suspected or accused of committing an intentional crime, as well as to those who were involved in violating state or public security.

It is specified that the basis for refusal will be the conclusion following the results of the inspection of the Ministry of Internal Affairs or the FSB of Russia. It will be valid for one year from the date of issue. The legality of the refusal can be challenged in court. It is noted that the military, law enforcement officers and representatives of indigenous peoples will be released from the check.

In addition, the law establishes the priority right of mobilized residents of the country and volunteers to deposit their civilian weapons with the state. The mobilized residents of the country will be released from liability if their weapons permit expires.

Amendments are being made to the Federal Law "On Weapons".

It's worth reminding that Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to tighten legislation in the field of arms trafficking after the shooting at a Kazan school in May last year. In particular, now a weapon permit is issued from the age of 21.
