Law and order are not good enough reasons to deny licence.

Well there are provisions in UK law that allow you to have expanding ammunition for example for protection from animals. What the judge seems to be saying is that the police can't arbitrarily deny a licence because they're worried it might have some impact in a fuzzy way on "law and order".

Reading that article the applicant sounds dirt poor so to get a ruling like this was no mean feat, no doubt the police told him to get stuffed and thought that would be the last time they'd hear from him.
