Thread: Scottish Air Rifle Amnesty

  1. #1

    Scottish Air Rifle Amnesty

    Thousands of air weapons handed in across Scotland - BBC News

    I just want it to be known that I am happy to take any Weihrauch rifles from anyone in the north-east, or any good quality PCPs of any make, just to save you the trip to the cop shop. Always happy to help

    Perhaps the money they raise when they auction them off will help keep licensing fees down........




    (Well, it's a nice idea, anyway).

    An amnesty is a fixed period of time during which people are not punished for committing a particular crime. Airgun owners are not, currently, committing a crime so using the term "amnesty" is inappropriate and pejorative .

    Since when has the truth ever bothered Politcians? In fact we have to wonder if they would reconise the truth if they came across it?

    As the main reason for the new legislation was due to a child being killed in 2005, I wonder if they are having a amnesty for car owners to hand in there cars as 200 were killed in 2014

    May I just correct that statement: ..............................

    As the main excuse for the new legislation was due to a child being killed in 2005, I wonder if they are having a amnesty for car owners to hand in there cars as 200 were killed in 2014.

    That is not a reason it is just an excuse to futher curtail the ownership of guns. More children are probably likked on playground equipment each year but that does not suit the antis and their agenda.

    Police scotland view anyone with a firearm as a criminal, in my experience!
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
