Proposals for Air Weapons Licensing in Scotland

#3
The whole thing has been brought forward by a clown with a true hatred of firearms. Once again, its the looneys running the asylum, directed by that most virtuous guardian of public morals, the daily record, toilet paper that it is.

Presumably 'arms' includes knives, so that's the skean dhu gone for a ball of chalk...

Proposals for Licensing Air Weapons in Scotland

Words fail me.

"There is no "right to bear arms" in modern Scotland. For those weapons which are needed we should seek to implement proper, proportionate controls over them."

Proportionate? Looks like total overkill to me

The SNP have to (rightly) deal with some of the special mongs that we have up here. Sniping from high rises etc. some of the tools have been playing too much COD.

With respect, the POLICE have to deal with the mongs.. which I wish they would..

Most SNP politicians, like any other politicians, have great difficulty in finding their arrse with both hands..

This makes about as much sense as banning alcohol.. nice idea, but impossible in practice..

... I will give you a fiver for every Mong that buys an airgun licence - they may be mongs, but they're not THAT stupid..

I at one time had one webley air pistol one air rifle that was in 1961-62 before i joined up and thay both needed licences i had a shotgun licence as well !.when did these licence stop .I know (think they never stopped for shotguns) i was not bothered anymore when i joined as i fire my share of smallarms and bigger ,But seriously i think there should be stricter control on all weopons if only to stop the knob heads or at least try

A weak attempt for a weak 'government' to play grown-up; and good evidence that the SNP will legislate against anything and everything to be 'independent' of Westminster

Its also a useful back-door tax when paying for all those obese meths addicts in Glasgow

The problem with that is that it doesn’t stop the mongs. Most dont give a rats shit about the law and budding entrepreneurs will soon feed the demand for air guns in the same way that they have done for hand guns, hard drugs and everything else the pious have tried to ban in our name.

There is sufficient legislation in place to deal with that already, if the police bother to deal with the scrotes. Now, if the threat of five years at her Majesties pleasure is not a deterrent does any sane person think that a licensing will make a bloody piece of difference?
Regarding the child that was shot and killed with an airgun some years ago, the general public and the fire service had been shot at for some forty five minutes before the fatal shot. Nobody had reported what was in effect a firearms offence to the plod! With that mindset there is no hope.

Thousands upon thousands of air weapons in Scotland. I live here and have an air rifle for bunny potting and am in the process of applying for a licence to upgrade to a .22 rifle. But if I wasn't and just continued to keep the air rifle when legislation is introduced, I'd buy a licence for the weapon. As would a few thousand other law abiding folk. None of us would be happy with it but we'd do it because it's the law.

The scotes who use their air weapons illegally and commit offences with them will not declare their weapons nor buy licences. The same amount of crime will be comitted by scrotes as before licencing, only difference will be that they will be using an unlicenced firearm.

I'm sure that the introduction of any legislation will be immediately followed by an amnesty. Amnesties are great opportunities for politicians to demonstratee how much safer they've made society by disarming the honest and law abiding. Sadly the scrotes who fire their air wepons from high rises don't fall into this catergory.

If plod can't deal with mongs using them illegally, I suppose the next best thing is going after normal human beings who don't.

I think to be honest, its less about plod dealing with these scrotes and more to do with lying politicians getting soundbites to tell us how they have made our world a much safer place, whilst actually not really doing anything.

This kind of legislation might play well to the average voter, anything that contains the words gun control seems to get instant buy in. Mr/Mrs average needs to read no further, think things through, check the facts etc.

Maybe they should issue all Scottish people with a license to breathe? Why the **** not?
Could probably say the same for Americans.

No, you could definitely say the same for the ******* skip lickers.

We know what will happen: the people who have them for a reason will pay for the licence, be more out of pocket and the neds who run about shooting kids and cats with them will continue to do so without any licence.

Waste of money, time and effort.
