    More Struggles on thier way for FAC holders?

    Just come across this on a facebook group... Anyone else aware of it... doesn't surprise me really, I would have thought there are plenty in senior posts in the police who would like a total ban.. Wanting something and getting something through are totally different propositions though... still relevant to us though:

    There are some ideas in there which aren't lunacy, to be fair, although arbitrarily banning .50cals is non-sensible, based purely on because they sound scary.

    I found only one, namely the removal of expanding bullets from S5.

    As for the rest, it's broadly what one would expect: the police require more control over lawful users of firearms, and the ability to extract more money from them, without any specific evidence in support of the propses bans and increased restricitions.

    I wonder whether the BASC has clocked this FOI request yet? The document https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...on%20paper.pdf which was apparently sent to the Law Commission via NABIS in May contains much to alarm the law-abiding.
