Review of Firearms legislation

Comment 12th July 2010

Why not repeal the ban on handguns?

Seems a shame that the British shooting team must practice in Switzerland when the very hub of marksmanship was Bisley. It's also a shame that this elite class will always remain elite if competitors are effectively selected out by legislation rather than their skill level.

Why does this matter?

It appears that criminals seem disinterested in following the laws of the land anyway, whereas there are economic, sporting and societal benefits to be had for ligitimate competitors.

Pistol shooting was very popular at one time, maybe it could be again. It might also attract some people back to the UK to invest, to bring back their wealth. There was a significant drain when the ban was enacted.
