    Q4 line 9 than should read that or the word 'that' come after than
    Page 7 last paragraph is not clear...to me
    Q8 Line 15 'that that'...only one needed
    Q11....Does the transport across the border of Scotland need addressing? Would a courier transporting air guns from Englandshire be committing an offence?
    Q14...The question is presumption of legislation and should state 'in the event of any new legislation....'
    Q17 Is final sentence 'A fine is all that is necessary for illegal possession charge'. Should it an illegal or illegal possession charges?


    Can you tell I'm stuck in work and bored?

    thanks for this, i will make changes but yes the cross border issues will be a problem as the law can only say its an offence to possess an air weapon in Scotland without a certificate and then make exemptions such as the carriers exemption in the current firearms act.
