Brazil’s president revises decree, bans carrying assault weapons

Brasília: Brazilians will no longer be permitted to carry assault weapons on the street after pro-gun President Jair Bolsonaro on Wednesday revised an order that enabled millions of civilians to be armed in public.
Eligible “common citizens” will be allowed to carry handguns but not rifles, the government said in a statement, admitting the change was in response to public outcry and legal and political challenges to the decree announced earlier this month. Only rural landowners will be permitted to purchase such weapons, provided they are kept at home. (AFP)
