En Uruguay… ha habido una disminución tanto de las tenencias y portaciones, a nivel de país, como a nivel de capital -Montevideo- para el 2010. La razón es que se puede suponer que la ciudadanía se está armando en el mercado negro.

Licencias: 2008 - 2009 - 2010
TENENCIAS MONTEVIDEO: 1.575 - 1751 - 865

Translated content:

In Uruguay… there has been a decrease in the number of licences to possess and to carry firearms, both on a national level and in the capital (Montevideo). This could be explained, at least in part, by the fact that people are buying more from the black market.

Number of Licences: 2008 - 2009 - 2010
Licences to possess, Montevideo: 1,575 - 1,751 - 865
