Regulación de las Armas Pequeñas y Ligeras

7. En Cuba existe un control riguroso sobre los poseedores legales de armas de fuego y no se permite la comercialización de ningún tipo de arma, no permitiéndose la compra y venta de armas a personas naturales ni entre ellas, así como tampoco entre personas jurídicas y naturales. Todo esto permite mantener niveles bajos de armas de fuego en poder de la delincuencia. En el ámbito interno no existe tráfico ilícito de armas pequeñas y ligeras.
