(A)   Notwithstanding any other provisions of this title, the Town Clerk may refuse to issue any license under this chapter until the facts set forth in the application have been checked and verified by the Chief of Police and it has been determined by the Chief of Police that the device to be licensed is in fact the sort of device contemplated by this chapter.  It is made the duty of the Chief of Police to inspect the device from time to time and to report thereon to the Town Council and to the Town Clerk; and upon demand by the Town Clerk for an investigation of any particular device, the Chief of Police must immediately make an investigation and report thereon.
   (B)   The investigation may be made either at the time of initial application for license or at any time the license may be in force, or at any time when renewal of the license is sought.
