Weapons: Draft Legislative Decree
Established by 41 deputies, the Legislative Decree Project (PDL) aims to block the change.
According to the publication, the movement is led by deputy Mário Frias (PL), who argues that this type of measure cuts off citizens’ freedom, in addition to hindering possible improvements in the country’s public security system.
In line with the perspective is the National Association of Arms and Ammunition Industries (Aniam), led by the CEO of Taurus (TASA4), Salesio Nuhs.
For Aniam, the measure is “inadequate” and “counterproductive”, and the negative effects tend to outweigh any benefits.
According to Aniam, the measure makes access to products more expensive for those who need them and harms the national defense industry “at a time when there is widespread concern internationally about the preservation and strengthening of the sector”.
