Iron Maiden members have fun at shooting club

Before continuing their South American tour, Iron Maiden members, Bruce Dickinson and Janick Gers visited a shooting club in São Paulo, Brazil.


They went to the 556 Shooting Club and School in the East Zone of city. On the day of the visit there was gun meeting among the members and there the musicians signed autographs, fired some shots and had a few beers with the staff of the establishment.

Gun control in Brazil

In Brazil, the Disarmament Statute is a federal law, derived from Bill No. 292 (PL 1555/2003), authored by then Senator Gerson Camata (MDB / ES) (killed in 2018 by a former advisor using a gun). The law was made official by the then president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, on December 23, 2003.

The government held a popular referendum in 2005 to see if the population would agree with article 35 of the statute, which dealt with the ban on the sale of firearms and ammunition throughout the national territory. The article was rejected with 63.94% of the “NO” votes against 36.06% of the “YES” votes.

The law prohibits the possession of weapons by civilians, except in cases where there is a proven need; In such cases, there will be a predetermined duration and subject the individual to the demonstration of their need to carry it, with registration and possession with the Federal Police (Sinarm), for weapons of permitted use, or the Army Command (Sigma). , for restricted use weapons, and pay the fees, which have been increased.

An example of such situations is people living in isolated locations who may require gun clearance to defend themselves. Possession can be revoked at any time, especially if the bearer is approached with his weapon in a state of drunkenness or under the influence of drugs or drugs that cause alteration of intellectual or motor performance.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
