In the French territories, civilian licences are issued according to the type of user: private citizen, accredited hunter, and/or accredited sport shooter. French law divides firearms into eight categories based on their design and purpose, and regulations for possession and use vary accordingly. Over time, certain firearms, such as semi-automatic rifles, have been re-categorized to make them subject to more restrictive regulation.
