Indonesia: Domestic gun control
In order to get a firearms licence, an applicant must be a member of a shooting club that is officially recognised by the government, and he or she must then apply to the Chief of Police for a licence for a hunting rifle or weapon for sport.
If the application is approved, then a weapon can be purchased, but it must be kept at a police station.
When the weapon is required for hunting, the licensee must ask for permission to take the weapon out.
The police supply a letter authorising the bearer to have the weapon for a specific time and area.
After use the gun must be returned to the police station.
