- a reduction in the number of arms civilians are permitted to own, from five to two;
- obligations for firearm owners to report theft, loss, and unjustified or illegal use of firearms; and
- an obligation for firearm owners to re-register their firearms when moving to a different address (RoK, 2010b).
