Article.

Durham Police have had a bad reputation for firearm licensing going back awhile, I agree with BASC, time for a national licensing system. It will be interesting to see what happens in Scotland now they've merged all the police forces.

I imagine the prejudices of the central belt airgun banners will be imposed on the Highlands, rather than vice versa. The SNP elite are firmly anti-gun, and I doubt a centralized bureacucracy would fail to get the message.

Mmm... but the SNP are strongest in rural areas of Scotland and Labour are strongest in the cities. Depends on how they set up the licensing dept., might still be decentralised. The new HQ is in an SNP constituency as well.

Perhaps the new licencing regime will be kinder to rural folk who have a "need" for an airgun than town dwellers who like to plink in their back gardens. Given that airgun crime in Scotland is down by 70%, and this whole farrago of nonsense was provoked by a junkie no-mark who shot and killed a small child, and is now doing life for it, the pointless futility of this festering pile of puke posing as policy is surely clear to anyone who is not brain dead, which is no doubt why the Scottish political establishment are so keen for their pretendie wee parliament to be wasting their time on it.

Have you read the consultation paper? Apparently the main objective is to stop the use of airguns in residential areas... so it will still be okay to use shotguns, etc. in residential areas I take it. What is a "residential area"? Not defined in the Firearms Act 1968. Rolling Eyes
