From 14 July 2014, if a person receives a
suspended sentence of three months or more then they will not be
able to purchase or possess a firearm or ammunition for a period of
five years from the second day after sentence. This timescale
has been set so that a person who is in possession of a firearm or
ammunition is not in immediate breach of the law when the sentence
is passed and has an opportunity to make arrangements to transfer
or dispose of their firearm or ammunition.
Police firearms licensing departments should be monitoring the
behaviour of their firearms certificate holders. In line with
best practice it would therefore be advisable to review the outcome
of any court appearances to ensure that those receiving suspended
sentences on or after 14 July are aware that they would need to
transfer or dispose of their firearm and/or ammunition.
However, a person who received a suspended sentence before 14 July
and already has a firearm certificate would be able to retain their
firearm and ammunition for the duration of their certificate.
Section 110 makes another amendment to the Firearms Act so that
from 14 July 2014, a person who has served or received a criminal
sentence will not be able to possess an antique firearm. The
prohibition applies to anyone who has served a custodial sentence
of more than three years or has served a custodial sentence, or
received a suspended sentence, of between three months and three
A person to whom this applies and who currently lawfully possesses
an antique firearm will need to dispose of it by 14 July.

O 14 Gorffennaf, os bydd unigolyn yn derbyn dedfryd
ohiriedig o dri mis neu fwy yna ni fydd modd iddynt brynu na meddu
ar ddryll tanio na bwledi am gyfnod o bum mlynedd o’r ail ddiwrnod
ar ôl y ddedfryd. Mae’r amserlen hon wedi’i gosod fel nad yw
unigolyn sydd â dryll tanio neu fwledi yn ei feddiant yn torri’r
gyfraith pan fydd y ddedfryd yn cael ei rhoi ac er mwyn rhoi cyfle
iddynt drosglwyddo neu gael gwared â’r dryll tanio neu
Dylai adrannau drylliau tanio’r Heddluoedd fod yn monitro
ymddygiad deiliaid trwyddedau drylliau tanio eraill. Yn unol ag
arfer gorau byddai’n syniad adolygu canlyniad unrhyw ymddangosiadau
gerbron y Llys er mwyn sicrhau bod y rhai hynny sy’n derbyn
dedfrydau gohiriedig ar neu ar ôl 14 Gorffennaf yn ymwybodol y
byddai angen iddynt drosglwyddo neu gael gwared ar eu dryll tanio
Fodd bynnag, byddai rhywun a dderbyniodd
dedfryd ohiriedig cyn 14 Gorffennaf ac sydd eisoes â thystysgrif
dryll tanio yn gallu cadw’r dryll tanio a’r bwledi yn ystod cyfnod
Mae Adran 110 yn gwneud diwygiad arall i’r
Ddeddf Drylliau Tanio sef o 14 Gorffennaf 2014, ni chaniateir i
rywun sydd wedi treulio cyfnod yn y carchar neu sydd wedi derbyn
dedfryd troseddol i fod â dryll tanio hynafol yn eu meddiant. Mae’r
gwaharddiad yn berthnasol i unrhyw un sydd wedi treulio mwy na
thair blynedd yn y carchar neu sydd wedi derbyn dedfryd neu
ddedfryd ohiriedig o rhwng tri mis a thair blynedd.
Bydd angen i rywun y mae hyn yn berthnasol
iddynt ac sydd â dryll tanio hynafol yn eu meddiant ar hyn o bryd,
gael gwared arno erbyn 14 Gorffennaf.
