Signed it awhile back , im afraid with the mis use of airguns by mainly idiot chav s is going to lead to some sort of registration. Thought this ban was only for the city areas of Scotland to start with ! .The usless killing of two mating swans with 7 pellets apiece to the head and neck in Scotland dosnt help 🙁 . Like hand guns , banning something just dosnt work and registration will just be another way of paying tax in this country. 🙁
Same is happening here in Finland. Currently we don’t have any regulations for airguns but there has been presentations already to change this. The problem is that we have 500.000 springers in country and very likely most of them exceeds the power limit they are planning.
And things started moving faster after few weeks ago we had the shooting incident in public school with .22 pistol. A guy killed several fellow classmates and then himself. Now politicians try to collect free points by suggesting all kind of stupid regulations which don’t have anything to do with the incident.
We have the same issue here with our gun laws….the damn bleeding heart liberals are trying to say that we need a TOTAL gun ban…..GREAT, that way the criminals will still have them, and we won’t be able to stop them because we aren’t allowed to have a gun! Hopefully we will never lose our ‘right to keep and bear arms’!
The few idiots that kill people are the cause for this. Parents should be punished when their child hurts/kills someone by the missuse of their firearm. A gun lying on the table WON’T kill anything or anyone, BUT you put it in someone’s hand, and that is a different story…”GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE”!!!
I’ll get off my soapbox now… 8)
