O Supreme Federal Court (STF) defined that the judgment of the actions on the government policy of Jair Bolsonaro in relation to the ownership and commercialization of weapons will be judged on the 17th. The topic had already been taken to the STF’s virtual plenary, but its analysis was postponed after a request for a review by the minister. Alexandre de Moraes. With the return of the case, the judgment was rescheduled by the Court. In the decisions, the ministers will define whether the decrees and acts of the federal government that change rules involving registration, acquisition, possession and taxation of arms and ammunition are constitutional or not. As the judgment will be made in a virtual plenary, the ministers will not need to hold a face-to-face session or by videoconference, and they will be able to present their votes in writing. The deadline for submitting votes ends on the 24th of this month.
