Antique Firearms Consultation

posted 19 Nov 2017, 15:53 by Tony Cattermole   [ updated 19 Nov 2017, 15:53 ]
We, HBSA, will be responding to the Home Office public consultation on antiques shortly. We will do so following substantial work together with BSSC, MLAGB, Arms & Armour Society, Royal Armouries, and other interested parties.

As we have previously mentioned in our last website post (quoted again below this message for easy reference), this is a second phase in the process started with the Law Commission report and the passing of the Policing & Crime Act, which includes a definition for an “antique firearm” (no longer a curio or ornament).

The attached document will give members some guidance should they wish to respond to the consultation as individuals. Most weight is given by the Home Office to responses from Associations and bodies representing their members but it is clearly preferable if members responses support the same views.
