Law No 33/2009 of November 18, 2009, Relating to Arms
We, KAGAME Paul, President of the Republic;
The Parliament has adopted and we sanction, promulgate the following Law and order it be published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Rwanda.
Article One: Purpose of this Law
This Law determines procedures for the acquisition, possession, carriage, manufacturing, sale, storage and obtaining of all types of arms and ammunition in any form whatsoever.
[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.]
