    Gun Laws in Pakistan

    Can someone give me an overview of gun laws in Pakistan? Is there a summary somewhere you could point me to?

    From reading the forum, I have learned bits and pieces, but I'd like to know more.

    Don't forget your great guns, which are the most respectable arguments of the rights of kings.

    Thanks for the share Lanio.
    Reading that I Have a question. Why Do gun owners need to get multiple licences for each firearm they buy. Why isn't the licence issued to a person that covers all firearms Bought by an individual, E.g like a driver's licence.
    I cant find anything in the ordinance suggesting Each weapon needs a separate licence.

    Dear bhai, I think there was a mis-understanding there
    I would have agreed to your point , that a licence doubles as a registration book for the firearm , Only if the licence book mentioned anything more than "F.Made 9mm" .
    A car registration Has ALL the Details of a Car to identify the Car.
    Firearm registration should mention At least manufacturer of the Firearm, calibre, capacity, year of manufacture, model and type etc etc.

    What we are issued is a Licence , which pretty much is an information booklet to certify that I can own a firearm arms, my biodata, whose gave me permission, and what calibre gun I can own ( a driver's licence mentions that as m.car etc)

    As a side note, Firearms are registered with the dealers, they hv complete documentation of where what and when they bought which type of weapons etc.
    Once I pass a driving test, I can own and buy as many 'registered' cars as I want without the need to get re-tested for each car. Similarly , if ive gone through the licencing process once, why do I need to go through it over and over again , for each firearm ( which is basically security /background checks etc ) . Seems to be a really pointless exercise.

    I would like to know what the nature of the licencing procedure is( is it an ordinance, a notice etc ) and if it can be legally challenged to make it less cumbersome.

    Regards.

    Because they have made law for it, we have to own a arms license for each gun we buy.
