Putin opposed to free gun sales in Russia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday, April 27 he is opposed to the idea of allowing Russians to buy guns freely for self-defense purposes. RIA Novosti reported.

“I do not support the idea of free arms distribution in Russia,” Putin told Rossiya 24 television adding: “It is dangerous to artificially stimulate this process.”

The idea came after a shocking massacre in downtown Belgorod, southwest Russia, on Monday afternoon, which left six people dead.

A gunman killed three people with a rifle at a hunting store before going out onto the streets and shooting dead another three outside the store, including a 45-year-old man and two teenage schoolgirls.

Sergei Pomazun, 31, the only suspect in the shooting attack, was detained near the city by police following a manhunt that lasted more than 24 hours and involved about 2,000 personnel.
