(5) The Commissioner may refuse to register a firearm if any firearm to which the application relates is not first produced for inspection by a member of the Police Service.

(6) The Commissioner registers a firearm by entering in the Register particulars of the firearm and particulars relating to the person in whose name the firearm is registered.

(7) If
(a) a firearm is registered in accordance with subsection (6), or
