Scots push airgun law on to the rest of the UK
The UK Government is to impose tighter controls on airguns following the murder of Glasgow toddler Andrew Morton, BBC Scotland has learned.
The Home Office could confirm as early as Thursday plans to restrict the sale of weapons to registered gun dealers.
There is some bad lawmaking going on here. Firstly the whole issue arose from one appalling incident, and it is a knee jerk reaction. But then it was going to be a Scottish matter, but the SMPs have decided that it should apply to the rest of us as well and so have pressurised the Home Office into taking it on.
If times weren't so hard I could be tempted to buy whilst I can.
