Wording of the Act

ACT of 5 July 1997, Bulletin of Acts and Decrees [Stb] 292, containing further regulations on the manufacturing, trading, transporting, possessing, carrying etc. of weapons and ammunition (Weapons and ammunition Act), as amended.

[This excerpt is taken from an unsourced, undated, unofficial translation of the Act provided by the Netherlands Ministry of Justice, which does not take into account amendments enacted since 1997].

[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org found no evidence of a provision in law to regulate this aspect of firearm policy. As some authorities enforce restrictions only in practice, the mere absence of a published legal provision should be treated with caution]
