I'm from the US and upset that the police have control over your firearms. Is there a political party or movement within the UK that supports more freedom of gun ownership? I mean, its bad that a person has to give a reason to somebody why they need a gun. Its none of the police's damn business right? If you feel like a .243 is not a fit for the game you are hunting, you should be able to buy a .270 or .30 06 if you choose.
