I know of an issue with someone i know and i asked the question on another forum,
the reply below was one made on that forum, my own thoughts are this could be open to abise by anyone who just wants to stir the poo FOR US AS SHOOTERS/RIFLE OWNERS.and as i have had a bit of an issue myself a few years back (at my old address) i am so glad this was not about then as i could be like the lad i know who has had everything taken away in the past few days and its with his permission i post this (no names and no pack drills)
simply put his other half has had a hissy fit and plod was called, 3 months later he gets his kit taken away, the best part was the hissy fit had nothing to do with him just his other half,
ARE WE ALL AT RISK OF HAVING OUR RIFLES ETC TAKEN AWAY FOR SILLY THINGS BEING SAID THAT COULD BE SAID BY ANYONE AT ALL.
i love the word turmoil, thats my house on most days and to think that a simple thing of telling you kids off in a loud voice can get you reported ??,
I just had a read of the new (November 2013) Home Office Guidance on Firearms legislation
https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/s ... v_2013.pdf
This is what it has to say regarding a certificate holder being the victim of domestic abuse:
"12.41 Chief officers should also consider danger to public safety or the peace, including arrangements for storage of the firearm/shotgun/ammunition where the certificate holder is a victim of, or a witness to, domestic violence or abuse in the family home. Any household which is in domestic turmoil is unlikely to be a suitable place for firearms to be stored."
