It is an offence for any person to transfer, let or hire, give or lend, any firearm or ammunition to another known to be, or having reasonable suspicion of being, a prohibited person under the conditions of section 21 of the Firearms Act.

Section 21 applies to any person who has been sentenced to imprisonment or youth custody or detention within a Young Offenders Institution for three months or more.

The period for which they are prohibited depends on their length of sentence:
