OBJECT AND REASONS.



The main Ordinances now in force dealing with the
Licensing and control of firearms were passed in 1899 and
1920 and are now regarded as inadequate in the light of
modern conditions. This Bill is therefore intended to repeal
the present legislation and to introduce a comprehensive Ordi-
nance with up-to-date provisions.
