Guide on Firearms Licensing Law, 2012 to 2013

“This revised guide aims to provide the police with guidance on firearms legislation. It should be noted that this is not a definitive statement of the law but is intended to provide a cohesive explanation of the often complex area of firearms licensing. The guide is being revised in batches, and chapters on specific topics will be published online once they are available. The first revised chapters provide guidance on restrictions on the possession, handling, and distribution of firearms and ammunition, and on the issue of museum firearms licences. Until new chapters have been published on other subject areas, reference should continue to be made to the 2002 version of the guide, together with any subsequent advice issued by the Home Office. Future changes to firearms legislation or policy will be reflected through updating of the relevant chapter online, to ensure that the document remains up to date and readily accessible.”
