There are regulations that govern how an individual may possess, carry, and store a firearm under the Firearms Act. There are also many criminal offences that can involve the use of a firearm. These can include: pointing a firearm, unsafe storage of a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, or unauthorized possession of a firearm. You are required to hold proper licensing for any firearm you own. If you discharge a firearm in a space where you put other people at danger that is also subject to a criminal charge.
When a firearm is used in the commission of an offence (such as a robbery), there can be mandatory minimum jail sentences that accompany a finding of guilt.
