Lithuania's parliament has adopted amendments to allow members of the Riflemen's Union and volunteer troops to purchase semi-automatic guns and cartridges, as well as keep them in their homes.
The amendments to allow purchasing B and C category guns were supported Thursday by 60 of Lithuania's 141 parliamentarians, seven were against, and 28 abstained.
Under Lithuanian law, weapons are divided into four categories, with the A category being the deadliest weapons and cartridges, and D being the least dangerous.
