"A review of the 22 injuries caused by guns in Birmingham's west and central areas between April 2011 and March 2012 reveals that the majority were the result of air-rifles and BB air guns."
So a company specialising in gunshot detectors for violent countries struggles to implement its system in a fnucked up country where the Police obsession is with airguns and airsoft guns...
Might as well add this hilarious coverage of the antiques guns "problem" from the Daily Mail:
On the upside, even Dail Mail readers are now commenting to the effect "WTF? Who robs banks with flintlock pistols?"...
So tasers are now firearms!
You'd need a portable one really.I'd have one on my house, if I was a Brazilian sparky.
They could be. Technically, I suppose. Depending on the legal definition of a firearm. For the purposes of the law in Ireland a crossbow is a firearm, a longbow is not.

"any weapon of whatever description designed or adapted for the discharge of any noxious liquid, gas or other thing;"
This covers prohibited weapons under the firearms act, the definition below states that:
(1)In this Act, the expression “firearm” means a lethal barrelled weapon of any description from which any shot, bullet or other missile can be discharged and includes—
(a)any prohibited weapon, whether it is such a lethal weapon as aforesaid or not; and
(b)any component part of such a lethal or prohibited weapon; and
(c)any accessory to any such weapon designed or adapted to diminish the noise or flash caused by firing the weapon;
and so much of section 1 of this Act as excludes any description of firearm from the category of firearms to which that section applies shall be construed as also excluding component parts of, and accessories to, firearms of that description.
This is quite ambiguous with the use of the words “and includes” (….be discharged and includes….). This implies that the items must have barrel, be prohibited and can be lethal or not.
It should read (….be discharged and also…..)
