Weapons license can be obtained on the Internet

the Head of Regardie Viktor Zolotov spoke about the transition to electronic document management when issuing permits for the use of weapons. In an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, the General explained that the data for all owners, sellers and buyers of weapons entered into the unified database created in the framework of the Federal project “Digital public administration”. In electronic form will interact arms factories, legal entities — sellers and owners. Licenses and permits for possession also will be issued in electronic form. It is assumed that all the documents (and now it’s about 15 license types and 19 types of licences) will replace one plastic card.

According to the plans, paperless technologies will be implemented until the end of 2021. This, among other things, will help to prevent illicit trafficking in and manufacture of weapons.

Earlier in the state Duma proposed to tighten control over arms trafficking.
