Court Orders

Firearms prohibitions

 

If an offender is found guilty of certain criminal offences, the judge may make an order preventing them from having things like guns, cross-bows or ammunition for a period of time. Usually a firearms prohibition is for a number of years, but it can be for life. Criminal offences where a firearm was used or present, or where violence was used or threatened, often result in a firearms prohibition.
