Son of Bolsonaro wants weapon factories to operate freely

Flávio Bolsonaro presented his first bill in the Senate

The first bill presented by Flávio Bolsonaro aims to make the rules for setting up this kind of companies more flexible.

On Wednesday (13), Senator Flávio Bolsonaro (PSL-RJ), the son of President Jair Bolsonaro, presented his first bill, which proposes to make the rules for installing factories dedicated to the production of firearms and ammunition in Brazil more flexible. In force since July of 1934, the current legislation prohibits, immediately in its first article, the installation of this type of industry.

"We present this project with the objective of rescuing the free exercise of rights and simplifying the normative framework concerning the matter, facilitating their interpretation and application by the constituted authorities - especially the Brazilian Army, the Federal Police and the Secretariats of Public Security - as well as correcting existing distortions in the law currently in force", the senator alleges in the justification of the bill.
