They also reported that the officers can secure weapons, ammunition or gun permits from any man “that might be expected to threaten life, health, freedom or human dignity of any other person”, the daily wrote. The same goes if the person in question has to submit a new health report or psychological evaluation.

All of Krupa’s guns are in his legal possession, according to the ĽSNS’s website.

“Police used the information in the media about Krupa having a gun permit as a pretext for their activities,” reads the statement on the website.

ĽSNS admitted that Krupa handed over a 9 mm Grand Power pistol to security upon his arrival to the parliament.
