    Abstract

    Until 1918 Denmark had no official regulations concerning import, production, and possession of firearms and ammunition. Former police regulations, however, contained prohibitions against the use of firearms in public places and wherever they might endanger or impede human safety. A limitation in the right to carry arms was also implied in a constitutional provision concerning actions of universal danger.
