In addition, the country will establish a procedure for periodic checks for medical restrictions on gun owners and their close relatives.

The law "On weapons" states that citizens of the republic who have reached the age of twenty have the right to purchase civilian hunting weapons and ammunition for them, and citizens who have reached the age of eighteen have the right to purchase civilian sports weapons and weapons of self-defense.
