Definition and Selection Criteria
Legislative regulation of the manufacture or assembly of firearms, ammunition, and/or their components.
Such regulation often includes the activities of firearm dealers, gunsmiths and armourers licensed or otherwise authorised to make, assemble, repair and modify firearms and ammunition.
Depending on wording and interpretation, the reloading of spent ammunition components by civilians, whether licensed or not, can also be regulated or prohibited.
