How should firearms be stored?

Usually, people who want to legally possess firearms must obtain a permit to possess them, which is issued by the relevant state authorities. The firearms license process usually requires the applicant to complete appropriate training and comply with various regulatory requirements such as minimum age, no medical contraindications, no criminal history, etc.

In Poland, the possession of firearms is regulated by the Act on Weapons and Ammunition of 21 May 1999 and by regulations issued by the Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration.
