    What’s about law and weapons in India? Is it legal to have cold weapons? What’s about firearms?


    Here is Croatia weapons are group in four categories: A, B, C and D.

    Weapons of A category are military weapons and only police and military can have them. Soldiers and police officers can have them only while they are on duty. These are military missiles, automatic fire arms, firearms hidden in other objects, explosives, semi-automatic weapons if it is similar to automatic weapons… Civilians can’t get license for weapons of A category.

    Weapons of B category are almost all semiautomatic short and long firearms that are not in A category (hunting weapons), pistols, old weapons… There are five licensees for such weapons that civilians can get. First is hunting license (person can have it at home and carry it only in hunting or shooting sport club). Second license is license for possessing firearms (person can have weapon at home fir protection but it is not allowed to carry it around expect in sport club for practicing shooting). It is not easy to get such license. Third license is for possessing and carrying weapons (it is almost impossible to get such license). People who work as security can get it, but they are allowed to carry guns around only while they are at work. Forth license is for members of sport shooting club and they are allowed only to have gun at home and in club. Last license is on for old weapons. Collectors can get it, but most of weapons will be deactivated.

    Weapons of C category are gas guns, old firearms and reproductions of old firearms where you put black powder in pipe. For such weapons you do not need license, but you have to report to the police that you have it.

    Weapons of D category are air guns, bows and crossbows, electric shockers, paper sprays and cold weapons (including bayonets :))). For such weapons you do not need license or reporting it, but you are not allowed to carry it on public place.
