Rosgvardia, private security companies or “short-barreled guns”: how can the population protect themselves from terrorists?


The terrible terrorist attack committed on March 22, 2024 in the Crocus City Hall shopping center simultaneously raised many unpleasant questions for its owners and whether it was even possible to prevent this crime without allowing such huge casualties.

If we analyze the proposals put forward by both ordinary Russians and not so simple ones regarding the prevention of possible terrorist attacks in public places, they can be divided into three groups. The first is to assign the responsibility for ensuring security to the Russian Guard, the second is to arm private security forces with firearms, and the third is to arm the population so that they themselves can, if necessary, shoot back at terrorists or other criminals with a “short-barreled gun.”

This is what everyone would like to talk about in a little more detail.


In theory, it is the duties of the fighters of the Russian Guard to participate in maintaining public order and ensuring public safety; protection of important government facilities, special cargo, communications structures in accordance with lists approved by the government of the Russian Federation; participation in the fight against terrorism and extremism; participation in ensuring states of emergency, martial law, and the legal regime of counter-terrorism operations; participation in the territorial defense of the Russian Federation, as well as performing other tasks. But there are nuances.

The question of the need to involve National Guard members in the protection, in particular, of preschool and school institutions was raised back in May 2022, when another tragedy occurred in the Ulyanovsk region. A local resident suffering from mental illness came into the Ryabinka kindergarten during a quiet hour, wounded one of his employees, and then killed a nanny and two children, after which he committed suicide. As it turned out during the investigation, there was no security post in the kindergarten, there was only a panic button.

Commissioner for Human Rights Tatyana Moskalkova and a number of others politicians then have spoken out for having Russian Guard soldiers on duty in kindergartens and schools:

This is not the first such tragedy; it is necessary to strengthen security measures in kindergartens, schools and colleges throughout the country. This extremely responsible task should fall on the private security officers of the Russian Guard, who must be on duty in preschool and school institutions around the clock.

Izvestia's interlocutors made calculations that have established, that in order to provide the National Guard with security only for preschool educational institutions, its staff will need to be increased by 200-300 thousand people. To secure all kindergartens, schools and colleges at the same time, 500 thousand soldiers are needed. If we add to them institutions of higher education through the Ministry of Education and Science, then another 300 thousand should be added to this figure.

That is, just to protect educational institutions, a whole army of 800 thousand bayonets is needed to add to the existing ones. And how many contract soldiers will have to be recruited into it to reliably cover all the shopping and entertainment centers, TV centers and shopping centers in the country?

Let’s add to this that at present the Russian Guard is actively involved in the Northern Military District zone, where it is provided with dangerous work for many years to come. Also, do not forget that the services of Zolotov’s department cost their customers on average more than private security companies. Businesses will be forced to pass on increased costs to end consumers.

“Controllers” versus machine gunners

The second sentence, which voiced the eternal fighter against corruption, State Duma deputy Alexander Khinshtein, is to arm security guards in shopping centers like Crocus with firearms. According to him, the soldiers of the private security agency had him:

Indeed, according to the law, private security organizations (PSOs) today should not set up armed posts at public facilities. The law only obliges private security organizations guarding such facilities to have service weapons in their arsenal.

Private security company Crocus Profi LLC, which guarded Crocus, has it. It’s just that they didn’t take him out of the “weapon shop”, and the guards at the entrance served without weapons and even without special equipment. I think it would be right to change the law and assign to the private security organization the direct responsibility of providing armed security for facilities with increased anti-terrorist security (Crocus and other large shopping centers fall into this category).

Let us note that the owner of the Crocus City Hall, which was burned down during the terrorist attack, Araz Agalarov, called the security guards of the shopping center “controllers” who were unable to resist the machine gunners conducting a combined arms operation. And you can’t argue with him here.

Indeed, the premises of shopping complexes are poorly suited for defense and conducting shooting battles. There, most likely, all the cards are in the hands of the terrorists if they are well prepared and have the audacity to attack. The presence of firearms among the security guards at the shopping center can act as a deterrent, but it is hardly decisive if the effect of surprise is used against them.

Cards, money, two guns?

The last proposal regarding the possibility of legalizing “short-barreled guns” and other similar weapons for the civilian population hardly deserves serious discussion.

As in modern Texas, here in Russian realities it definitely won’t work. Rather, it will be like in the wild, wild West. Perhaps someday we will come to something similar to Israel if the terrorist threat continues to increase. But this is not soon and not certain.

    the proposal regarding the possibility of legalizing “short-barreled guns” and other similar weapons for the civilian population hardly deserves serious discussion.

    Actually - why? Why, for example, can’t I, with 20 years of gun ownership experience and five guns in my safe, including two sniper rifles, be trusted with a pistol? And there will be many like me.

    As a gun owner, I am infinitely far from delusional thoughts such as distributing weapons to the entire population. At least for now. But why can’t a short barrel be used for those who seem to have already proven their reliability? People with extensive ownership experience, employees and military personnel, both retired and in service? At least one reasonable reason? Why, for example, does a police officer have to hand over his pistol when leaving duty? So you can do it at work, but not after it?

    And in the future, we need to instill a weapons culture in people, naturally - to those who want it. Open a wide network of shooting ranges, shooting ranges, and clubs. Finally organize something like DOSAAF or NSA, improve legislation, etc..

    Because no security guards or police officers can, in principle, protect ALL objects in the country under current conditions. Only the citizens themselves. No options. It is generally unnatural and wild to deprive people of the right and opportunity to defend themselves and their loved ones.

      In my opinion, the problem here is not even the reliability of those people who can be trusted with weapons. The problem is the rationality of such a step. Even world shooting champions who have not undergone combat coordination are unlikely to be able, in a situation similar to Crocus, to quickly choose the correct tactics of interaction and provide worthy resistance to an armed group of people acting in concert according to a pre-planned plan. At the same time, the very fact of permission to have weapons indoors will give terrorists the opportunity to act not “from the entrance,” but to start shooting from more advantageous positions, legally bringing weapons into the facility. Well, naturally, no one will conduct combat coordination of visitors who have proven their reliability before each mass event...

            Do you know what is very strange about Russia? Criminals are always armed - they find an opportunity, but law-abiding citizens do not. In a certain sense, they are all hostages of the state - whether it is capable of ensuring personal safety. And often it is incapable. Maybe it’s worth giving citizens the opportunity to help the state with at least this? It is impossible to imagine armed security for every citizen. Of course, in an ideal world, a citizen is protected by the state at any time and in any situation from illegal actions. But there is no such thing anywhere. Only among science fiction writers. Maybe it’s worth being closer to reality? Like in Switzerland, Austria, Israel? Short-barrel even in public places with permission and concealed carry...Where does Russia have such distrust of its citizens? By God, not stupider, not angrier than the rest...

              So no one says that in Russia the state has reached perfection and ideally fulfills its functions. In fact, there is still something to work on here. And taking on the functions of the state and performing them unprofessionally - well, this will most likely lead to a repetition of the “wild West”.

                  Sometimes it seems to me that we have left it: after all, in the USSR, even the police did not always have weapons, but there were practically no mass executions similar to Crocus. One can probably argue that people have changed now, the conditions are not the same, but... then the problem is in people, not in weapons.

          but I would just knock him down from 5 meters

          This is just one of the possible options laughing In fact, this option seems simple and logical if you look at the camera footage. But in reality... I tried to find answers to some simple questions, such as “Why were the attackers in camouflage?”, “Why weren’t they wearing masks?”, “Why did they use this particular automatic weapon?” and came to the conclusion that the terrorist operation was not developed by an amateur, but by a person who had a fairly good understanding of psychology. After all, in essence: what is the first thought that comes to mind when you hear shooting in a crowded place and see people in uniform and with weapons? - Apparently, they are catching criminals. Why do they shoot people? - Apparently these are the criminals. Who needs help? Naturally, people in uniform. And if at this moment the visitors had weapons, most of them would either not use them, or would “help” the terrorists. Of course, this confusion quickly passes when people in uniform start shooting specifically at you, and the person starts shooting back. And it is at this moment that “options begin”: against the backdrop of rushing adrenaline, a person, even from five meters away, may not hit a terrorist, but hit civilians standing nearby; seeing that people in uniform are shooting at civilians, and civilians are shooting at people in uniform and other civilians, now those who missed the beginning are now definitely starting to think that a special operation is going on, trying to understand who the people in uniform are shooting at, they themselves begin to shoot hit anyone; what was initially an attempt to protect oneself from terrorists quickly turns into a massacre where everyone shoots at everyone and every man for himself...

              Quite often, the solution that comes to mind first seems to be the simplest and most correct, and even excludes any others. But later it turns out that this was a mistake due to the emotional intensity of the situation. And from a rational point of view, a completely different option of behavior will be correct, which may not even be the only one and certainly not obvious.

            I repeat: reality and imaginary reality are two very different things. Yes, perhaps you have stronger nerves than James Bond and in a stressful situation you would hit a terrorist in the eye from 5 meters without blinking an eye. But... when you watch football, have you ever had the question, how can you not hit a goal that is 7,32 wide and 2,44 high from one meter? So, there it’s just a game, but here life is at stake, and the stress level is several times and even orders of magnitude higher...

        Yes. There is no doubt that with this option there will be casualties from retaliatory shooting. But let’s ask a question - but in this case, wouldn’t the situation be completely different? For example, a dozen would have been hit by a random bullet, but the remaining one and a half hundred would have survived. Is not it? The price may seem unacceptable, but is it so?

        Of course, they will not be able to coordinate actions. But by opening fire back, they will firmly draw the terrorists’ attention to themselves. Giving the others time to evacuate...

Naturally, this will somewhat change the methodology for “terrorist personnel selection”: now they will look not just for those who want to “earn money,” but for “those who want to earn money and have a license to carry weapons.” Well, where is the guarantee that among these people there will not be those who come to “improve their level of well-being”?

          Ps: if the victims are not at the hands of a terrorist, but at the hands of ordinary citizens, the terrorist’s task will be completed. It will be little consolation for the relatives of the victims to know that they were not shot personally by the terrorist, but by his “voluntary assistant.”

            And the given criteria are not an argument? If short-barreled weapons are allowed, say, to employees and people with at least 10 years of experience in owning long-barreled weapons, don’t you think that it will be somewhat difficult for terrorists to select performers from among them? It would be easier to get hold of illegal trunks then... Moreover, this is not a problem at all.

              So I wrote that it will just be a little more complicated. Just look at the statistics, how many former employees work in all sorts of foreign legions and similar organizations. And the question is not about illegal guns - I think for terrorist organizations this is not a problem at all: they can be obtained in any quantity and in any quantity. The question is about the license of the performer, which gives him the right to be with weapons in the most critical points for the safety of the facility: where there will always be some civilians, possibly children, in the line of fire, perhaps some other additional danger factors: fuel, gas or what -explosive - that is, the terrorist’s task will be to bring the weapon into this particular zone, where the presence of these additional threats will not allow him to be shot like in a shooting range, but he will have just such an opportunity.

      The question is not only who can have weapons, but also when and against whom they can be used; this is not a front where everyone who is in front of you is an enemy in someone else’s form.

We need a law on the use of weapons, otherwise even if you cripple a terrorist, they can imprison you too.

    Maybe a little off topic, but I want to draw attention to the mentality of terrorists. In this case, Tajiks.
    For them, shooting at innocent Russian people, women and children is work for money!
    They are ready and agree to do this kind of work!
    Before they took up arms, they were all migrants who came to work.
    Labor migrants!
    But the mentality was already there. It doesn't change in a day or two.
    And with such a mentality, with a willingness to kill us for money, millions of migrants roam around Russia!
    And the Duma is still thinking about whether we need migrants or not. Who did you let in here?!
    In the country, tens of millions of our citizens are engaged in bullshit - sorcerers and psychics, dog makeup artists and hairdressers, political scientists and experts, bloggers and fleapers, pizza delivery people and other cultural intelligentsia of non-traditional social orientation.
    This is where the labor reserves are.
    It’s impossible to count the number of officials alone who were divorced. They multiplied like cockroaches.
    Migrants are just the surface layer of the dung heap.
    Dig this pile deeper - such “pearls” will fall down!
    But there is no one to dig. Crocus has to happen for someone to pay attention.
    But weapons cannot solve this problem.

      This is where the labor reserves are.

      Exactly. And in general, start paying people, and it will become much easier. There will be no need for any migrants. They say - who will work, for example, as a janitor? And you, like in Soviet times, give people apartments after 10 years of work in housing and communal services, there will be no end to those who want them. Especially with the current mortgage...

      Let's be honest - you can't find workers for pennies so that a bourgeois can exchange his three-year-old Bentley for a new one.. Look at production - in many places they were forced to pay more or less reasonable money, and people immediately went.. Otherwise, those who wanted to stand at it was really impossible to find a machine for 8 hours for 25 thousand... Strange, right?

          You let them take root a little, and then you yourself will be surprised at their requests. But it has always been believed that political struggle is much more dangerous for the stability of the state, political struggle is a struggle for power, which is what is happening now. Can "migrants" come to power? Many will say no, but in 30 years? If migration is not controlled, and the role of diasporas in governing some regions? Any movement directed against the government must be neutralized in the bud.

    sorcerers and psychics, dog make-up artists and hairdressers, political scientists and experts, bloggers and fleapers, pizza delivery people and other cultural intelligentsia of non-traditional social orientation. This is where the labor reserves are. Yes, it’s time to attach all the rubbish to the business, but for now... it’s not enough to import monkeys with a grenade from neighboring zoos... with all the consequences

    Of course, specially certified private security companies must have firearms. Especially if they are entrusted with a concert hall or ice arena, especially during events. But this does not mean that there will be guys hanging with machine guns at the entrance. The firearm must be in a special room, in which there are guards with monitors covering all main rooms and entrances. A very simple scheme

      Correct presentation, only short-barreled weapons should be carried by everyone while on duty (work).. Automatic weapons should be kept in storage, for issue and use on demand.. The SVO is underway, the enemy will undertake sabotage and terror, therefore increased combat protection is necessary .

          You don't know the basics. Before having access to a firearm. You need to get (pass examinations) a lot of certificates, from a psychologist, medical workers, certificates of social and other stability, etc. When you begin to assert, make sure of your knowledge.

            Which of them did they stop? Looking at how arriving Central Asians receive Russian language proficiency certificates, do you think they won’t get them? Your desire to protect yourself from them with piles of certificates is unlikely to save you from them.

    Stories with arrests need to be shown more often (on billboards too...).
    and harder, harder...
    and then public punishment.

    why was the tree cut down? For example, a backpack flamethrower should be provided. or a UAV with such a fire-breathing thing.
    (a gas burner is not suitable. The jet is small. A larger container under good pressure is possible, perhaps).

    USA and Canada, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark, Brazil and Mexico, Israel and Yemen. Anglo-Saxons and French, Germans and Danes, Jews and Arabs, blacks and Latinos. Different cultures, levels of safety and well-being. What do they have in common? - they can buy and carry a short barrel. They are mature enough for this. But the Russians cannot and have not matured. How is that? Look at the murder rate per 100000 population - are all these countries in the lead? In the USA, the level is lower than ours - thanks to the weapons of citizens.

    It seems that this is a special deviation from the oligarch’s responsibility.
    1) there were 2 policemen there. Escaped? The dog handler definitely spotted the one running.
    2) there was a police station there. Escaped? did not show themselves in any way.
    3) Some people died because they were unable to escape and suffocated in the smoke. MK writes - more than 90 people. As in "winter cherry". (where the owner was and is at large, they write) i.e. there are clearly security violations. And the delay of the rescue services.
    that is, there are 2 times more people killed by carelessness than by terrorists...
    If it is demonstrative to show where, what and who is to blame, no short-barreled gun will be required. Oligarchs, dog handlers with dogs, police officers and roasters will probably tear the bastards to pieces simply with everything they have...

    The security forces of the oligarchs will begin to shoot the bastards right in the republics, even as soon as they listen to the sermons..

    But no one will give a short gun to the population. And there are few of him left, and they don’t trust him.
    It is significant that (they wrote here) they did not create militias from the people in dangerous areas. And they made government institutions with weapons under the administrations.. (not verbatim)

      Russia conducts SVO. After all, it was possible for people to refuse to participate in such massive and dubious events for the duration of the event. Also, a group for me, a “picnic”? Crazy music and songs “about nothing.” Yes, the same “Leningrad”, despite the “obscenities”, is an order of magnitude more “sane”. There is music and meaning in the words.
      I read that someone came to the concert all the way from Vladimir! All to MOSCOW! But not to work, but “to sing”! People have suffered... from idleness!

        Since some people don’t give up yachts, dachas, billions, overseas tours...

    once at a closed event where the mayor Valentina Matvienko and the president of Finland were present, they hired a security guard, one retired KGB officer and several stupid security guards, what is dismantling television cameras for us, they don’t know or can’t do built-in weapons, in general, he asked me to help with the security, which in fact it wasn’t....if the terrorists wanted, they would kill everyone, and the armed private security officers won’t save, they’ll just hire more terrorists and that’s it... I have a short barrel, no one has checked it on the street for decades, only in the safe or sometimes the National Guard checks, that is, a potential criminal can walk around armed for years without anyone recognizing him, but criminals have weapons, and all prohibitions are not important to them, but I have to walk around with a rubber arrow?????.... I also have a fire-barreled dinno-barrel, my opinion is personal
    1 allow short-barreled weapons with lead bullets for those who have, for example, rifled Kalashnikov Saiga assault rifles (that is, have at least five years of experience in owning military weapons), because if I have owned long-barreled weapons for years, then you can trust me
    2 arm chops
    3 to prevent terrorist attacks, it is necessary to execute terrorists by cutting off their heads and ears, then there will be no terrorist attacks... and there will be no need to arm security guards with grenade launchers at concerts
