[Translation by]

Article 1. Scope

This Law regulates the acquisition, possession, registration, carrying, sale, importation, exportation, manufacture and storage of weapons, ammunition, explosives and gunpowder, in all its presentations, and raw materials for products covered by this Law in all its aspects, as well as the installation of security devices.

[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, found no evidence of a provision in law to regulate the 'ballistic fingerprinting' aspect of firearm policy. As some authorities enforce restrictions only in practice, the mere absence of a published legal provision should be treated with caution]
