Existence of weapon does not guarantee the security- Minister of Internal Affairs

According to the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, citizens are still using illegal traumatic weapons.

Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan Rashid Zhakupov commented on the situation regarding the availability of weapons from citizens, BNews.kz correspondent reported.

Does the existence of weapon guarantee the social security? What is your response? Once we made amendments changes in the seizure of traumatic weapons. It was predicted by a sharp surge in crime with the use of this weapon. The weapon, which was intended for self-defense, was used to commit crimes. You agree the normal reaction was to seize this weapon, aren’t you? “ Rashid Zhakupov asked on the sidelines of the briefing at the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

“The existence of weapon does not guarantee the security,” the deputy minister announced.

That time when we okayed the existence of five units of weapon – traumatic weapon, gas, fire weapon, rifled, smoothed guns some chaos and troubles were fixed. And we still digest the consequences of authorization to possess weapons.
