Act on the Disarmament and Control of Arms and Ammunition

Article 1. Object

The purpose of the present Act is to lay down rules for, regulate and supervise the carrying, ownership, possession, use, registration, manufacture, trade, supply, storage, registration, import, export, transit and transportation of all kinds of arms, ammunition, accessories, parts and components; define and sanction illegal acts resulting from this matter to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit manufacture and trade of firearms and ammunition; as well as to create plans to implement, coordinate and supervise the disarmament of natural and legal persons in the attempt to guarantee and protect citizens and institutions of the State, their properties, goods and values.

[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org found no evidence of a provision in law to regulate this 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]
