Carrying in Public

Some jurisdictions have imposed an absolute prohibition on the carrying of firearms in public places by civilians, such as Brazil and the Russian Federation, though exceptions are made for private security guards, hunters, and sport shooters.

Others permit the carrying of weapons, provided the carrier has reasonable grounds for carrying the weapon and the weapon is unloaded, as in Finland, or has obtained a permit or special (one-off) permission to carry, as in Croatia, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, New Zealand - for pistols and restricted firearms - and Switzerland.
