22 de November de 1843 - La recogida de armas ilegales tras la Jamancia en perspectiva británica (275)

The keen debates in the last session of Parliament about the registry of arms in Ireland, where fine and imprisonment was the only punishment proposed, make one a little curious as to how they manage these matters in other countries. Here is a Spanish arms-bill:—

«Don Laureano Sanz, Captain-General of Catalonia, &c. The public tranquillity was threatened yesterday by armed groups of the national militia of this capital.

«In the Plaza del Rey and the Barrio of Gracia, there were uttered vivas for the Central Junta, the seditious provoking the peacefully disposed, and singing alarming ballads at the risk of promoting scenes which must be avoided—to that end I ordain and command : 1. The National Militia of Barcelona shall give up its arms, accoutrements, ammunition, drums, and trumpets, within the period of six hours from the publication of this Bando, to the Commandant of Artillery in Atarazanas. 2. Any individual not complying with the foregoing requisition will be shot immediately. 3. Domiciliary visits for the purpose of search are hereby authorised; and any person in whose house a musket shall be discovered will be instantly shot, unless the owner of the weapon shall be discovered in the said house. But in case of his discovery the owner of the said weapon will be shot, and the occupying tenant of the said house shall pay a fine of 100Z. Catalan; but if he shall not have wherewithal to satisfy this demand, he shall be sentenced to six years’ imprisonment. 4. Penalties of proportional amount will be inflicted for the offence of concealing swords, pistols, bayonets, accoutrements, ammunition, drums, and trumpets. Barcelona, 22nd November, 1843.»

This proclamation had the desired effect.
