section 45c and air guns

Postby airgunner97 » Sun Aug 05, 2018 12:12 pm

so hi i was reading old cases about arms act and i found many thing with it.

section 45c

so section 45c say arms act won't gonna apply on obsolete pattern weapon or antique and deactivated guns.

so there is no definition of obsolete pattern and its says weapon not firearm which mean it can be any weapon that today not used or produced.

however in the case 'Abhishekh Upadhaya vs Prin. Secy. Home U.P. Civil' court defines matchlock, wheellock and flintlock as primitive firearms.

so it can be obsolete however bladed weapon are not obsolete as court says in case 'State vs 1 Sonu' . its a diffrent thing that indian arms act only defines bladed weapon and firearms as weapon.

the third condition in section 45c is interesting in many cases guns were consificated were not able to fire the bullet so they were get bail.

air guns

now i will talk about air guns .22 air guns were need license since 2016 arms rules however in 2002 delhi high court in case 'People For Animals vs Union Of India' said that air guns cannot be regulated from arms act cause section 2 of arms act dosen't define air weapon as guns. as i said before arms act only define firearms and bladed weapons as firearm.

so its just my 2 cent on this topic what do you think?
