13. Restrictions on granting licences for category D firearms

(1) The Commissioner is not to grant a licence authorising the possession or use of category D firearms unless:
(a) the genuine reason established by the applicant for the licence is:
(i) vertebrate pest animal control;
(ii) primary production;
(iii) firearms collection;
(iv) museum display; or
(v) instruction in firearms use and safety; and
(b) the applicant produces evidence to the Commissioner's satisfaction that there is a genuine need for the applicant to possess or use category D firearms.

(2) Where the genuine reason established under subregulation (1) is primary production, the applicant must produce evidence to the Commissioner's satisfaction that he or she needs to possess or use category D firearms for the culling of large feral animals and the need is not met by any other means (including by the possession or use of another category of firearm or the employing of a professional contract shooter).
