Law of the People's Republic of China on the Control of Firearms.
This law is formulated to strengthen the control of firearms and maintain public security and social order.
[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org found no evidence of a provision in law to regulate this aspect of firearm policy. As some authorities enforce restrictions only in practice, the mere absence of a published legal provision should be treated with caution]
