The Voice of Russia

65 people have died in Russia in the past 5 years as a result of stun gun use. In all, more than 2000 crimes involving the use of traumatic guns have been committed over the period.

The Deputy Chief of the Russian Interior Ministry Law Enforcement Department Leonid Vedenov has voiced hope that the situation will change for the better now that President Dmitry Medvedev has signed a law to toughen the rules of selling such guns.

The law, signed on Tuesday, December 28th, bans the carrying of traumatic guns during public, cultural-mass and sporting events, including at rallies and in processions. Besides, criminal and administrative responsibility has been tightened for selling such arms.
