    Marking of firearms parts...

    So was just reading the arms act as applying for dealer license and came across this..

    41AMarking of firearms
    (1)
    This section applies to all firearms, parts, pistol carbine conversion kits, and magazines possessed by firearms licence holders, including those manufactured in or imported into NZ New Zealand, but does not apply to antique firearms.
    (2)
    Firearms, parts, pistol carbine conversion kits, and magazines to which this section applies must be marked to the extent provided in, and in accordance with, requirements set out in regulations made under section 74.
    (3)
    The Crown is not liable to pay compensation in respect of—
    (a)
    the loss of value in the case of any firearm, part, pistol carbine conversion kit, or magazine that results from it being marked in accordance with the regulations; or
    (b)
    the cost of marking the firearm, part, pistol carbine conversion kit, or magazine.



    So in theory every part that attaches to a firearm needs to me marked with a serial number????

    WHAT???

    intentionally fails to mark a firearm, part of a firearm, or pistol carbine conversion kit manufactured by the person in accordance with this Act or regulations made under section 74.
    (2)
    A person who commits an offence against subsection (1) is liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years.


    So if someone were to manufacture a part and not number it they can go to jail for 10 years!!

    unless your a gang member then you are exempt from the above and will receive a severe slap with a wet bus ticket if they haven't run out...

    Yeah... it says that in §1... "parts possessed by license holders"
    Thats just great. Would hate for the government to have to impose any rules on criminals...

    I think a lot of the firearm laws only apply to licence holders...where does that leave everyone else. Different set of rules?
