New Policing and Crime Bill placed before parliament today.
The Bill includes provisions for: "quote"
• The simplification of the legal definition of the word firearm, including setting a new threshold of a firearm’s kinetic energy at 1 joule.
I have just looked up the equivalent of 1 joule and it appears to be 0.737562 ft/lbs .
Have I got the wrong end of the stick? as this would make all air guns and even kids toys guns firearms!
Could someone please enlighten me on this bit of proposed new legislation.
