I was speaking to a mate today who told me that a lad he's been helping to apply for FAC has been refused.
The reason given is that he was in a car with some other lads who are known to the police. The car was pulled over and all their names taken, nothing came of it and they were allowed to go on their way.
But now it seems because of his "association" with these lads, he can not be trusted with firearms.
Other than this he has no criminal record and never been in any trouble of any kind,
Can this be right?
