9. (1) Subject to this Act and any regulations made thereunder, no person shall sell or transfer, or keep or expose for sale or transfer, any arms or ammunition unless he is the holder of a valid licence to deal in arms and ammunition granted to him under this section:
Provided that—
(a) the holder of an arms licence in respect of any arms or any firm, partnership, company or corporation owning such arms may, subject to section 3, sell or transfer otherwise than by way of trade or business any such arms;…
(c) a licensed manufacturer may keep any arms or ammunition manufactured or to be used for manufacturing under his licence without holding a dealer's licence…

(4) An application for a licence under this section shall be made in the prescribed form to the Chief Police Officer of the State in which the applicant proposes to carry on business as a dealer or repairer or both, as the case may be, and shall state such particulars as may be prescribed:
Provided that where the applicant is a person who holds or is at the same time applying for a licence to manufacture arms or ammunition he shall make such application to the Minister.

(5) A person carrying on any trade or business of dealing in or repairing arms and ammunition at more than one place of business shall apply for a licence in respect of each such place of business.

(6) Subject to this Act and any regulations made thereunder, the Chief Police Officer or the Minister, as the case may be, may grant to the applicant a dealer's licence or repairer's licence, or a combined dealer's and repairer's licence, in accordance with his application, if he is satisfied that the applicant can be permitted to carry on business as such dealer or repairer, or both, as the case may be, without danger to the public safety or the public interest.

(7) A licence granted under this section shall be in such one of the prescribed forms as may be appropriate, and shall specify the address of the place of business in respect of which it is granted and the conditions and restrictions subject to which it is to be held.

(8) Every licence granted under this section shall expire on the 31st day of December next following the date of issue but may be renewed by the Chief Police Officer of the State in which the holder carries on business or the Minister, as the case may be, for a further period of one year from the said 31st day of December, and so on, from time to time; and this section shall apply to the
renewal of such licence as it does to the grant thereof.
