OFFENSIVE WEAPONS BILL AMENDMENT

UPDATE


Thursday 10th January 2019 Share this article: | 1 comments

The Offensive Weapons Bill currently sits in the House of Lords where its committee stage looks at amendments of detail.  This bill which is really all about knives and corrosive substances but includes sections on certain types of firearm.  

The GTA sent an Update in Oct 18 to all its Members encouraging them to email their MP with details of an amendment to oppose the ban on high energy rifles.  By working closely with the British Shooting Sports Council members and providing MPs with more balanced information we make our voice heard and that ban was dropped.  There are many more threats to our industry and we must be ready for them.  Very often we see decision makers in Westminster being fed incorrect or incomplete information.  With your support the GTA can ensure truthful, clear information reaches those in power in order that our jobs and businesses are protected.

If you are not currently a GTA Member and would like to be involved in this and future initiatives, APPLY NOW and add YOUR VOICE to that of the Association.
