President Lula announces drastic measures for gun control and public safety

Less ammo

Earlier this week, the Minister of Justice, Flávio Dino, announced that the new decree on weapons will have as its main purpose to reduce the amount of ammunition in circulation in Brazil.

In addition to addressing ammunition control, the purpose of the decree is to prohibit shooting clubs from operating 24 hours a day and restrict the possibility of sports shooters traveling with loaded weapons.

The minister stated that there would be no elimination of carrying weapons and that people could still seek police institutions to obtain possession. However, he stressed that a “general release” would not be allowed in which people pretend to be collectors, sport shooters or hunters only to acquire rifles indiscriminately.

CACs

The decree presents stricter measures in relation to the acquisition of weapons and ammunition by CACs (Collectors, Shooters and Hunters). For sport shooters, there is no longer a universal limit on gun ownership and carrying; instead, different categories are established based on the athlete’s degree of participation in training and competition. The higher the engagement, the more weapons and ammo can be acquired.

Another significant change relates to the calibers available for purchase by civilians. Shotguns of any caliber and 9mm, .40 and .45 ACP pistols are again considered calibers of restricted use, reserved only for defense and security forces.

In addition, the authorization for CACs to transit with their loaded weapons is revoked. The decree also provides for the implementation of a weapons buyback program in 2023.
