Table 9.2 - Overview of Prohibited and Restricted Firearms for Civilian Possession

Singapore:

No specific prohibitions or restrictions (and automatic firearms and automatic pistols are included in the definition of 'arms'), but very strict provisions on who can possess a gun: only target shooters and, in very exceptional cases, for personal protection.

- Penalty for Possessing Prohibited Firearm: unlawful possession of any arm, including automatic arms: 5-10 years and 6+ strokes of the cane

- Registration: details of the firearm must be recorded; details of the owner or licensed person must be recorded; details of the licence, permit, or authorization must be recorded - plus the nature of the arms licensed, any identification marks, and any licence conditions; dealers keep records of sales
