Members will be aware that firearms security has become a highlighted issue due to terrorist and criminal activity at present.

The Telegraph and Times published articles yesterday including a statement made by AC Mark Rowley that "800 legitimate firearms go missing every year” and the Telegraph article (which has the most provocative headline) and Andrew Mercer’s response from NRA may be seen on the NRA website under “news”.

We have also been in touch with NABIS and police and we may expect further statements soon.

Please be aware and make sure that you pay attention to your security at all times, both at home, in vehicles and elsewhere.
