Power to Refuse Firearm Licence or Permit Unless Firearm or Ammunition Produced
8.—(1) Notwithstanding anything contained in any of the foregoing sections of this Act, a licensing officer may refuse to grant, renew or vary a firearm licence, or to grant a written authorisation under section 7(h), unless and until any firearm to which such firearm licence or permit will, if granted, renewed or varied, relate is produced to him for his inspection and for marking, if necessary, in accordance with the requirements of subsection (2).
(2) No firearm licence shall be granted, or, as the case may be, varied or renewed, in respect of a firearm unless the licensing officer is satisfied that such firearm bears such mark or number of identification as may be prescribed or will be marked with such a mark or number before it is taken into possession by the licensee or that it is exempted from the requirements of this subsection by regulations made under section 55.
