PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This book is devoted exclusively to the law relating to the use of guns. In it the ordinary person who handles guns will find all the requirements of the law which he needs to know, and those who have to enforce the law will find it of invaluable assistance to them in their work.

Issues addressed include: shooting game, protected birds and animals, guns for sport, rifle clubs, the tenant’s right to shoot, the definitions of firearms and ammunition (including prohibited weapons and imitation firearms), the licensing of firearms, how to obtain a license and how to appeal a refusal or revocation, young people and guns, poaching, and criminal offences relating to firearms and ammunition. Useful appendices complete the book.

- the law relating to young persons and guns which has been subject to a number of recent modifications
- key changes relating to game shooting introduced by the Regulatory Reform (Game ) Order 2007  
- a brand  new chapter relating to the security of firearms & ammunition
- an additional  chapter  expanding substantially the information relating to  licensing appeals and applications for the removal of a firearms prohibition
- an expanded section on criminal offences involving firearms and the available penalties
