20/07/2005Gun laws to be tightened
20 July 2005
THE HAGUE – Rules for gun ownership will become stricter in August 2006, the Ministry of Justice announced on Wednesday.
Beginning next autumn, anyone who wants a weapons permit will have to be a member of a shooting club affiliated with the Koninklijke Nederlandse Schutters Associatie (KNSA).
To prevent criminals from learning to shoot in a club, aspiring members must also be licensed by the KNSA.
Weapons permits will also become easier to revoke. From next year, committing a crime will be grounds for losing one’s licence, as will ‘moving in criminal circles’.
The KNSA will conduct checks of affiliated clubs and issue licences to individual members.
Prospective members will have to submit a certificate of good behaviour, to prevent people with a criminal record from joining.
Those wishing to own a gun will be required to have a special safe. Collectors will have to submit a collection plan and will be assigned a mentor in the first year.
