Hi all ,
Just wondered if there is a new law when it comes to guns been handed in to a dealer if so let me know but here is the reason why i ask.
On friday a old friend told me that a neighbour in his 80`s had died and the wife and daughter had found 3 guns , which where a 9mm garden gun and a 12bore hammer which both where knackered and a colt 44 six shooter revolver missing its hammer and workings.
so i took these of them and put them in the register and informed the police by email.THEN today i got a call of the police saying that they are sending around forensics to take them away to check and then to be destroyed.
That i dont mind at all but i want the colt back after that but was told i could not have it back because the law has changed as from last year ????? I have never been informed on this and niether as other dealers i have spoke to today.
can anyone shed any light on this.
