Trade in firearms, firearm parts and ammunition

§ 16.(1) Anyone intending to trade in firearms, parts of firearms or ammunition must have a licence from the competent Ministry. Unless the King decides otherwise, this also applies to the weapons mentioned in § 5. An application for a licence shall be sent to the Chief of Police in the district where the applicant intends to carry on his business.

A licence can be limited so as to apply to specific types of firearm and ammunition and otherwise be made subject to conditions as laid down by the competent Ministry.

The licence shall state the holder's name and place of business, the scope of the licence, and the conditions for the conduct of the business.

A person who according to the first paragraph of § 16 of the Act relating to explosive goods has permission to manufacture ammunition for sale, may without a licence engage in trade in such ammunition of his own or someone else's manufacture as the manufacturing permit comprises from places of manufacture or storage which he has established with permission according to § 22 of that Act.
