49A. Authority given by licence

(1) A licence authorises a licensee to possess and use a weapon or category of weapon endorsed on the licence for any lawful purpose.

(2) However, the authority to possess or use a weapon, or a category of weapon, under a licence is subject to a regulation, condition or participation condition, whether imposed by an authorised officer or prescribed under a regulation.

(3) If a condition is prescribed under a regulation for a category of weapon —
(a) the condition applies to all weapons of the category, whether licensed before or after the day the condition has effect; and
(b) the licence is taken to have been amended to include the condition.

(4) If use of a firearm is authorised under another Act, a licensee does not contravene this Act only because the licensee uses the firearm in the way authorised under the other Act.
