I'm new hear and this may be in the wrong section or asked a million times!.
I have recently got back in contact with an old friend we bumped in to eachother at a clay ground in Herts. He has a shotgun licence but has been to jail for GBH back when he was 17_18 ish and got 2.5 years,I was in court when this happened watching. How is this possible? He is also applying for his FAC as he has land to shoot. Will he get it? The police can't see him as a danger to the public as he has a shotgun and he is not prohibited, I've never heard of this as it's a conviction for violence. As far as I'm aware he has no other convictions, he's now got a family etc.I want to ask him how he got it but don't want to annoy him or bring up his past.
