Oh well, if I'm going to have to go to the bother of applying and pleading my case... I think like everyone else I'll just go the full hog and apply for a bullet gun.

Good luck trying to process all those applications!

Would applying for this type of license be just as easy/hard as applying for a fac? I.e rimfire?

Default Concern

"While Ministers are very aware of the history of such domestic and hobby shooting,
the Scottish Government has a wider responsibility for the safety and
reassurance of the public. The sight of guns in residential areas is no longer
acceptable. "

Having bought a house with decent sized garden in a small village in order to shoot at home, I worry that this sort of legislation will come to England. Also wonder what residential area means? Time to move abroad? - Maybe the rules are worse elsewhere?

And me. Please vote to show there is a large voice who will remember where their votes will go in any future elections.Small pressure groups, howether strong they feel thier cause is , can be persuaded that a small minority of morons will still break the law,restrictions or no restrictions.
Thiis could also spread to England/Wales in the future if passed in Scotland.
