About three years ago I was approached by a chap known to me for many years. He asked if I would sign his application for a shotgun certificate. This I did as I knew the family well and he had just got married and had a small child and everything looked well. I saw him on a regular basis and helped him choose his first shotgun. About 18 months ago I heard from a friend that he had gone off the rails and was behaving like a child and had been convicted of minor offences. This came as quite a shock and my immediate thoughts were what would the police think of me as I was the one who signed to say he was of stable mind and responsible. He has continued to let himself down badly and from what I hear he is capable of anything.
I would like any advise please on what could happen to me should he continue in this way. I would never have signed it if I knew he would behave in this manner. I will certainly not be signing his renewal if he gets the opportunity and I have even thought of contacting my Firearms officer to tell of my concern but do not know if I would open up a can of worms. What do you think guys.
