House of Lords latest amendments to the Policing and Crime Bill includes these of interest to sporting shooters:
1) A proposal to change the blanket 'ban' on expanding to only apply to ammo used in pistols. Not sure where that would leave the .357/.38 carbine users?
2) Automatic extension of expired certificates for 8 weeks if police haven’t issued a new one.
Apparently they have government support as they originated from a Conservative Peer, Baroness Williams.

Labour peer amendments are somewhat more probematic for shooters. For full-cost recovery of fees (must have been living under a rock as it's already in place!), and automatic revocation of the FAC of anyone who has a firearm stolen from them and a lifetime ban on firearm ownership imposed, all without any form of court hearing!
