I am writing to you in connection with a recent enquiry from the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) on behalf of its members concerning your policies with regards to the licensing of firearms.
I was a little concerned to see that you hadn’t yet responded to that request whilst the Liberal Democrat and Independent candidates have.
As an avid shooter myself virtually all the direct contact I have with the police is related to the on-going administration and licensing of firearms and therefore the views and any plans a candidate has in this area will naturally have a significant impact on how I and the many shooters within the Avon & Somerset area will vote at the upcoming elections.
I would be grateful if you could respond to BASC’s request as a matter of urgency as, I am sure you are aware, time is rapidly running out. In case you hadn’t seen it I have included a copy of the email from BASC below.
