Scottish consultation

In its consultation on airgun licensing in Scotland, the Scottish government says it’s committed to introducing licensing for low-powered airguns – and BASC is spearheading a campaign to oppose the plans.

According to the Scottish government’s own figures, airgun crime has fallen for the last five years in a row – a total decrease of 71 per cent. BASC is claiming a licensing scheme for the estimated half-million airguns in Scotland is both unnecessary and difficult, involving the use of extensive police resources – and could well have a knock-on effect to the rural economy north of the border, which relies heavily on shooting.

BASC is calling for unity among all shooters, from all regions, and has put together an action plan.
