2016 m. gegužės 31 d. 16:05
Amendments are making their way through Lithuania's parliament to allow members of the Lithuanian Riflemen's Union, a civilian paramilitary organization, and of the National Defense Volunteer Forces to acquire and keep semi-automatic weapons and ammunition at home.
The draft amendments on Tuesday passed their second reading in the Seimas in a vote of 58 to seven with 21 abstentions.
One final vote is needed to adopt the amendments, which would allow riflemen and volunteers to acquire and possess B and C category firearms.
Under Lithuania's law, arms are classified into four categories (A, B, C or D), with Category A arms being the most dangerous and those in Category D being the least dangerous.
