Scottish Air Gun Law Petition



Simple as, HunterX forwarded this to me.
There is a move afoot to bring in compulsory licensing for Airguns north of the border. Whether you are a gun-rights person or not this is a monumentally stupid idea. The Scottish Assembly has already had to abandon its woeful attempt to burn public money by licensing knives, and now in the face of public opposition still wants to create a whole new criminal class at the stroke of a pen.
If you'd be so kind as to add your name to the petition, we can get yet another glimpse of the contempt our leaders have for democracy.

Hi Everyone,
Firstly I'd like to thank everyone for their continued support in this campaign and as we are drawing nearer to the petition meeting that support will be invaluable.
The bad news first is that despite 87% of consultation responses against the proposal the Scottish Government has decided to ignore this and press on.
The good news is that we are nearly at 16,000 signatures on the petition.
However judging by the actions of the Scottish Government in ignoring the responses to the consultation we are going to have to show the strongest hand possible. It is with this in mind that I'd like to ask if everyone just try to reach just 3 more people. If we can all do this then we will easily surpass 20,000 by the 3rd of September. It is down to us to fight our corner no one else will do it for us.

If you do share please ensure you send the link to our change.org page and if possible also our Facebook page.
Many Thanks
Thanks
SBW

What in the world are they trying to prevent or control? And who would be dumb enough to actually register one's knife or pellet gun?

Certainly looks very strange from the outside doesn't it. My guess is that many Scots wish to live in a modern country and so respond against anything they see as the fieldsports theme park that Scotland is sold as?
