Restrictions on the Grant of Licenses and Arms Permits

5. (1) No arms licence shall be granted or renewed for—
(a) a pump or repeating shot gun of any kind, unless the magazine of the gun is so constructed or permanently plugged as to render it incapable of firing more than one cartridge at each pressure of the trigger or, in the case of a double-barrelled gun, one cartridge from each barrel;
(b) an arm that is so designed or adapted that if pressure is applied to the trigger missiles continue to be discharged until pressure is removed from the trigger or the magazine containing the missiles is empty;
(c) any arm of any description designed or adapted for the discharge of any noxious liquid, gas or other thing;
(d) any grenade or bomb or other like missile;
(e) any ammunition containing or designed or adapted to contain any noxious liquid, gas or other thing.

(2) No arms licence or arms permit shall be granted or renewed to a person under the age of eighteen years:
Provided that the Chief Police Officer of the State in which an applicant of at least sixteen but under the age of eighteen years resides may, if he is satisfied that exceptional circumstances exist such as would justify the grant or renewal of a licence to the person, at his discretion waive the provisions of this subsection, and shall record his reasons for doing so thereon.

(3) No arms licence or arms permit shall be granted in the name of any firm, partnership, company or corporation, but nothing in this subsection shall prevent an arms licence being issued to a responsible person nominated by or on behalf of a firm, partnership, company or corporation to have possession, custody or control of the arms or ammunition owned by the firm, partnership, company or corporation.

(4) No arms permit shall be granted or renewed unless there is an arms licence in force in respect of the arms and ammunition described therein.
