Government approved an amendment to the Arms Act, that counts as the establishment of a central registry


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Police should be under an amendment to the Firearms Act, the cabinet agreed on Wednesday, to manage the new central register of arms. Norma also counts with the obligation of carriers to allow weapons police GPS tracking to their vehicles or raising fees for holders of firearm licenses.

The amendment to the Firearms Act contains several innovations. One of the most significant is the establishment of a central registry of weapons. The current method of businessmen led evidence of weapons and ammunition in paper form in the records is not covered, promoters have failed. Police also does not have a comprehensive system that would contain data on all civilian weapons in the Czech Republic and their holders. Agency approval Mediafax informed source familiar with the negotiations of the government.

The cost of developing and building registry Interior Ministry estimates that the amendment is submitted to 7,215,000 crowns. Most of the costs (85 percent) should pay the fund Czech-Swiss cooperation. The remaining amount of around one million grant from its budget Czech police. Promoters, however, that if the amendment is approved, the Czech Republic the money pledged at the register comes.

"Swiss party provides for the establishment of a central register of arms from Jan. 1, 2014, if this date should not be adhered to, it would be also the reason for the refusal to provide funds," the explanatory memorandum to the proposal.

Another novelty is the obligation of carriers of weapons and ammunition to equip their vehicles with a device capable of continuously monitoring its position. From that promoters promise a better police supervision over the safety of such shipments.For entrepreneurs who currently does not own equipment, a new requirement of promoters a cost of thousands of units of crowns.

"While each shipment of arms and ammunition in their export, import or transit must be police at the request of entrepreneurs and enabled the police have no data on the transport, the law on weapons is missing a powerful tool that would allow police to monitor continuously transport, and If necessary, contact the operator of transport especially in an emergency transport. was these situations present practical security risk that must be removed by this proposal, "according to the material.

The amendment also touches wallets holders and applicants for firearm licenses. Should increase administrative fees. The fee should be 'newly chosen already for submitting the application and must be paid even in case of rejection. It also allows for an increase in management fees by an average of 40 to 50 percent. For example, a request for a gun license by his people for each group instead of the current 500 crowns new paid 700 crowns.

"The amount of administrative fees charged for acts of public administration in the area of ??weapons and ammunition remained a law on administrative fees unchanged, the increase is rather 'hand by calling' the state in 2004 and corresponds to an increase in prices and average gross wages," explains material.

The amendment also provides several shortcomings of current legislation. Easier, for example, should be the relinquishment of firearms license, with which the present laws do not count.

The standard is designed to provide effective from 1 January 2014.
