Chapter One, General Provisions
Article 1. Objective and Purpose of the Law
1. The objective of this Law - to regulate the circulation of arms and ammunition with a view to ensuring the safety of an individual, the public and the State.
2. The purpose of the Law - to lay down provisions of the classification of arms and ammunition into categories, to consolidate the legal basis of the circulation of arms and ammunition and the control thereof, as well as to establish the rights and duties of entities whose activities are related with arms and ammunition.
[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org 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]
