FESAC update 14 Feb 2017 re EU Firearms Directive

This is an excellent summary of where we are by Stephen Petroni, FESAC Chairman, with input from others mentioned in the acknowledgements.

As he says, we might be said to have reached 80% of our objectives. This could be considered good in a compromise agreement, however there are still some points that need pursuing, not the least of which are issues around large capacity magazines and potential change of a firearm’s Category according to their use, and deactivation standards which are still under discussion.

I have asked Stephen Petroni for a list of points which may be included in letters to be written to MEPs in order to be co-ordinated, and will report any further news and action requests.
