Law Level

Law Level is an indication of the relative oppressiveness of the world. The code of the UWP is classified on the Law Level table to show prohibitions against weapons. It also influences the difficulty to avoid being harassed or arrested by local authorities.

The Law Level is only a guideline on local restrictions on possession and use of weapons by individuals. Police, Security and Military forces are usually not bound by these law levels, though may be influcenced by them.
