Fighting Airgun Regulation in Scotland

A Tayside man is calling on Gordon Brown to block an attempt to hand legal control of airguns to Scotland.

Mr Lamb, of Dundee, fears the SNP government will use the power – if granted – to ban all unlicensed air weapons.

His petition says: “This measure harms the legitimate sporting shooter and fails to address the real problem, that caused by unlawful use of airguns.

What? Use of gun control to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens while doing nothing to criminals? Is that possible?

Via Sebasitan, who writes

Yes, even airgun sports are not safe if our numbers and political power are dropped to a sufficient degree.

In Michigan, my 14-year-old son cannot purchase BBs for his air rifle.
