Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy may be aware, the Firearms (Firearm Certificates for Non-Residents) Act 2000 provides that a non-resident firearm certificate is required by persons resident abroad wishing to "have in his or her possession, use and carry" a firearm in the State.

My Department currently has no plans to amend the Act. However, as with all legislation within the remit of my Department, this position is kept under review.
