The Republished Law
This is a republication of the Firearms Act 1996 (including any amendment made under the Legislation Act 2001, part 11.3 (Editorial changes)) as in force on 27 April 2016. It also includes any commencement, amendment, repeal or expiry affecting this republished law to 27 April 2016.
[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org 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]
