3. Possession or use of weapon unlawful to extent another licence is needed to authorise that possession or use

(1) The possession or use of a weapon under a licence is unlawful to the extent that a licence of another class is needed to authorise that possession or use.

Example —
X holds a firearms licence that on its face authorises X to possess or use any category A or B firearm.

However, X must not possess or use a category A or B weapon —
(a) as part of a collection of weapons (a collector's licence (heirloom) or (weapons) is needed); or
(b) in performing duties as a security guard (a security licence (guard) is needed); or
(c) as a security organisation (a security licence (organisation) is needed); or
(d) to store, manufacture, modify or repair the weapon in the course of the licensee's business of storing, manufacturing, modifying or repairing weapons (an armourers licence is needed); or
(e) for the purpose of dealing in weapons (a dealer's licence is needed); or
(f) for the purpose of supplying the weapon, without a change in its ownership, on a temporary basis for use in the production of a theatrical, film or television production (a theatrical ordnance supplier's licence is needed); or
(g) to provide an approved training course (a firearms licence (instructor) is needed).

(2) A licence given after the commencement of this regulation must contain a copy of subsection (1).

(3) Failure to comply with subsection (2) does not invalidate any proceeding for an offence.
