I'm sure Mike won't mind me helping disseminate this further,
"I'D LIKE TO HELP YOU SON, BUT YOU'RE TOO YOUNG TO VOTE...."
(23/06/10) Recently two "Early Day Motions" have been put before parliament.
Now while these motions rarely go further, they ARE a good way of finding out who our friends are - and the opposite.....! The first is by Keith Vaz MP "Firearms for under-18 year olds" and the second is by Bob Russell MP "Gun Licences for juveniles"
If your MP has signed this motion, it would be a good thing to let him or her know - as a constituent - that in fact the shooting sports are safe and well regulated, and that this is appears to be a slur on young shooters who have done no wrong. A short, polite explanation of our sport - perhaps by using the BASC "E-Mail your MP" facility will help you, young shooters and the sport a great deal.
Bill Wiggin MP has been very specific about contacting your MP, and whys- and he makes it clear that this is important - see Letter from an MP to Shooters.
The constituencies of the MPs who have signed the EDMS are:
- Leicester East
- North Tyneside
- Luton North
- Portsmouth South
- Manchester Withington
- Hayes and Harlington
- Bristol West
- Heywood and Middleton
- Liverpool Walton
- Glasgow South West
- Stoke-on-Trent North
- St Ives
- Birmingham Yardley Over to you !my words not Mikes., Is your MP going behind your back?
