That's true. My MP has promised to take it up with the Secretary of State and is asking for clarification as to how target shooters will fare if this goes through. There is clearly some support for the report that Swift authored, aligning lead with dangers.

Have the people who dreamed this up actually shot?

And have they elicited opinion from the military, as this will have an enormous effect on the efficiency of the projectiles that the soldiers will be able to use in combat situations. Presume we are either going on to laser guided bolts from crossbows, or darts!!

We voted these idiots in, we CAN vote them out too, although we will have to wait until 2020, remember how your MP responds and post their reply here so those interested can see.

The "problem" is developing for years and not only in UK.
I am from Poland and up to now there aren't such strict attempts to change regulations in my coutry. Nevertheless I think the issue shoud cocncern every citizens of european coutries.
You have my vote, but only here. I am not British citizen and UK resident and I can't fill in the petition.
Good luck in the "battle".

The difference between black and white is a rainbow.
