    College of Policing - APP on Firearms Licensing

    Have just stumbled on this, which appears to be new.

    Maybe it qualifies for a 'sticky' in this section?

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    "Although there is no specific legal power to seize firearms prior to revocation, if there is an immediate risk to public safety appropriate action must be taken. The response must be proportionate to the risk identified. Certificate holders should be given the opportunity to surrender their firearm, ammunition and certificate, unless this is impracticable."

    So no specific legal power to seize firearms prior to revocation.

    The power exists under Common Law " immediate risk to Public Safety or the Peace" or, alternatively, by the execution of a warrant issued under the Firearms Act..
