How would this be enforced if theres no knowing who has airguns?
I understand that the measures were originally fairly severe but BASC made representations and they have backed off a little.

At a guess it will be that if anyone is injured/offence committed with an airgun, if you are the owner and your security is found wanting you will be prosecuted. I'm presuming that the offences would be committed by someone other than the owner.

We will have to see how the legislation is framed.

This of course is fairly insignificant compared to the proposed devolved legislation if it goes ahead.
