Thread: Get away!!!

  1. #1

    Get away!!!

    In November Sporting gun there is a letter from a chap asking what's the chances of getting FAC after doing 2yrs for armed robbery 15yrs ago (he was the get away driver)
    The advice given is basically to apply and see what happens, and to consider an appeal if it's refused.... WTF???

    If this guy gets an FAC it makes a mockery of the whole system!!!
    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"

    Good deals with ~ deako ~ sakowsm ~ dryan ~ 2734neil ~ mo ~ riggers ~ mmbeatle ~ seanct ~ an du ru fox

    it was 15 years ago, did you never do something stupid when you were yonger? granted this is more stupid than most but whats to say he hasnt changed, settled down with a family and is now a respectable decent bloke, everyone has things they regret and most deserve a second chance, atleast give him a visit to see what the guys like imo

    thanks

    I think doubtful, but you never know -

    If the person has been sentenced to a total of 3 years or more in prison or corrective training then they are prohibited for life from the possession of any firearm of any kind.


    If a person has been sentenced to more than 3 months but less than 3 years imprisonment, youth custody/detention or a secure training order then they are prohibited from the possession of any firearm of any kind whatsoever for a period of five years from the date of their release.


    Also anyone released on licence under section 53 of the Children & Young Persons Act 1933 (detention of young persons convicted of serious crime) and anyone subject of a binding over or recognisance a condition of which is that he shall not possess, use or carry a firearm.

    I've walked home pissed with a traffic cone on my head... does that count?

    Most of us have done stupid things, but we are talking about armed robbery here, not just a stupid prank. It takes a certain sort of person to carry out an armed robbery even if you are only the driver....

    That's a pretty serious crime, would be a bit strange if he did given that people get refused on the basis of depression and family arguments... I suppose it was a long time ago, but that could just mean he hasn't been caught for 15 years!

    Foolishness is one thing, but a history of violence is surely a no-no where firearms are concerned?

    on a lighter note some would say that the getaway driver is the most important part

    He didn't seem to be a very good one though

    "and to consider an appeal if it's refused."
    Will that be a no win, no fee parasite then!!! I know the firearms law and guidance in this country has become over restrictive to say the least, but, honestly, if this is true, and this person gets an fac, i'll show my ar*e in Burtons window, sell my firearms and donate the proceeds to a Fox rehabilitation centre.
