Grant, etc., of Firearm Licences

(5) A licensing officer may at any time by notice in writing vary the conditions subject to which a firearm licence is held, except such of them as may be prescribed, and may by such notice require the holder to deliver up the firearm licence to him within fourteen days from the date of the notice for the purpose of amending the conditions specified in such licence.

(6) A firearm licence may also, on the application of the holder thereof, be varied from time to time by a licensing officer.

(7) A firearm licence may be revoked by a licensing officer if—
(a) the licensing officer is satisfied that the holder is prohibited by or under this Act from possessing a firearm to which the firearm licence relates, or is of intemperate habits or unsound mind, or is otherwise unfitted to be entrusted with such a firearm; or
(b) the holder fails to comply with a notice under subsection (5) requiring him to deliver up the firearm licence.

(8) In any case where a firearm licence is revoked by a licensing officer, he shall by notice in writing require the holder to surrender the firearm licence, and if the holder fails to do so within fourteen days from the date of the notice he shall be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of four hundred dollars:
Provided that, where an appeal under section 45 is brought against the revocation, this subsection shall not apply to that revocation unless the appeal is abandoned or dismissed, and shall in that case have effect as if for the reference to the date of the notice there were substituted a reference to the date on which the appeal was abandoned or dismissed.
