Article.

Not surprising, the Irish laws are a total mess, you think UK gun laws need consolidating...

I genuinely don't fully understand them myself, the criteria for issuing an FAC for a restricted firearm is a mess, then they amended it again to say certain ones were prohibited and so on. Various drafting mistakes were made in the last couple of changes to the law. Then there's a grandfather provision for handguns, which appears to be what this case is based on, i.e. he thinks he can get an FAC because he's grandfathered, the Garda say he doesn't have a good reason, even though he did previously.

Shooters win.

Unsurprisingly. The number of times the Garda have been caught with their pants down by shooters you'd think they'd try and be more reasonable. But no... nasty guns are involved, they have to be as awkward as possible.
