Prohibition on pistols
Wellington: Regulations under the Arms Act have been issued. They are to come into operation on January 1 next. Application for permission to carry a pistol beyond the home must be made to the police on a special form. It must state the purpose for which the weapon is required, and must be accompanied by a recommendation from some other person. The holder of a licence to carry a pistol must notify the police of
any change of address. No person is to be permitted to import arms, ammunition, or explosives without a permit issued by the police. Application for such a permit is to specify the articles proposed to be imported. The permit to buy firearms, ammunition, or explosives must be obtained by an application to the police, and will be good for a period of six days only.
