The Securing of arms and ammunition is contemplated in Article 106, which specifies that “When the members of public security institutions secure arms or ammunition, they must immediately notify the corresponding administrative unit, so that the necessary registrations can be made in the state and national registers of weapons and equipment, and make them available to the competent authorities, in terms of the applicable legal provisions and regulations ”.
The sanctions are established in Article 107, which only states that “Failure to comply with the provisions of this section will result in the carrying or possession of weapons being considered illegal and, therefore, sanctioned in terms of the legal provisions and applicable regulations ”.
