72-year-old resident of the city of Naryan-Mar voluntarily handed over unregistered firearms and cartridges to the National Guard of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The pensioner explained to the employees of the regional center for licensing and permitting work that the single-barreled hunting rifle IZH-5 of 1932, in Soviet times, passed from father to son and from older brother to younger, and that he personally hunted with a family heirloom in childhood. Having accidentally discovered a gun among the old things in the attic, the man decided to comply with the requirements of the current legislation, which prohibits the illegal circulation of weapons, their main parts, ammunition, explosives and explosive devices under the threat of criminal punishment.

“Despite its venerable age, the hunting rifle is quite well preserved. The suitability of a rare weapon for the production of a shot will be checked by forensic experts, the conclusion of which will decide the issue of paying a monetary reward to a conscientious citizen. Let me remind you that the punishment for illegal trafficking in weapons includes imprisonment for up to 20 years. However, the voluntary surrender of weapons, their main parts, ammunition, explosives and explosive devices exempts from criminal and administrative liability without a criminal record and other negative consequences,” said Police Major Dmitry Popov< /b>.
