Quote of the day–Gun Control Network

All our objectives are predicated on the belief that the interests of public safety demand a reduction in the availability and attractiveness of guns of all kinds.

  1. Minimum age of 18 for the ownership, use and possession of all guns.
  2. Ban on the sale, manufacture and import of imitation guns and their possession in a public place.
  3. Certification of all deactivated weapons.
  4. Inclusion of airguns in certification system.
  5. One certification system for all legal weapons i.e. rifles, shotguns, airguns.
  6. Multi-shot rifles and shotguns to be banned.
  7. Practical or Combat shooting or any other shooting practice which involves the simulation of real life situations and/or the use of human shaped targets to be banned.
    Abolition or radical reconstitution of the Firearms Consultative Committee.

We recognise the existence of a significant minority interest in shooting for sport, and our proposals are aimed at striking an appropriate balance between the sport-shooting interest and the overriding interest in public safety.
