Guns to Be Marked

21. (1) Whenever any gun for which a licence is required is not marked with such names and figures, or in such other manner that the same may be readily identified, the Commissioner may, whenever application is made for a gun licence before granting the licence, require the applicant to produce the gun, and thereupon to cause it to be marked on the lock, stock and barrel with some permanent mark whereby the same may afterwards be known and identified, but in such manner as not to injure or disfigure the same and such gun when duly marked shall, with the licence relating thereto, be delivered to the applicant.

(2) Any person who willfully obliterates or defaces or alters, counterfeits or forges any mark placed on any gun or accepted by the Commissioner under the provisions of subsection (1) of this section, or marks any gun with any mark resembling or intended to resemble any mark so used by the Commissioner, with intent thereby to expose any person to any fine, or to commit any other fraud, shall be liable for each such offence to a fine of one hundred and fifty dollars.
