2. Authorising provisions

These Regulations are made under sections 24, 31, 56, 57, 58, 63, 87, 97, 106, 155, 167, 168, 170, 178 and 191 of the Firearms Act 1996.

3. Commencement

These Regulations commence on 20 April 2008.

[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]
