Firearms Act No. 20.429 of 1973

Scope of the Act and Territorial Extent

Article 1 - The acquisition, use, possession, carrying, transmission by any means, transport, introduction into the country and import of firearms and handheld launching devices or any similar class of device, dangerous chemicals of any kind and other materials that are classified as weapons of war, gunpowder, explosives and any similar materials, and firearms, ammunition and other materials classified for civilian use, are subject to provisions of this Act. There are no exceptions other than those referred to in Article 2.

[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, 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]
