Deactivated Firearms Consultation Paper

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The long awaited (Deactivated Firearms to be banned by the end of the year - Home Secretary, January 2008) Consultation Paper has been published. To save people ploughing through it, the only significant bit is Page 8, where the Home Office fail completely to prove that there is a problem.

    Its a consultation paper containing options and requesting feedback - I suggest appropriate feedback is given.
    5 crimes recorded..... probably more pressing areas of crime to be addressed before this one...
  3. I imagine that this will go the same way as the 2004 consultation that didn't go the way the government wanted -- it was conveniently forgotten about and never published. Given the time and effort I had put into writing my submissions, I was livid.
