Recommended Posts

PetitionRecognise the UK standard of firearm deactivation as equivalent to EU standards.

 

Proposed legislation in the Policing and Crime Bill intends to enforce the application of a EU standard that will result in firearms previously deactivated to UK Home Office standards being classified as defectively deactivated. The EU standard is inferior to the UK standard and unnecessary here.

I hate to be awkward, but the UK government can't reinterpret a piece of existing EU legislation, so this will just get the same response the earlier petition did.

 

It would be far more use to petition the government to support Vicky Ford's proposed amendment 19 to the EU firearms proposals: "Deactivated firearms should not be covered by this Directive if they have been deactivated in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2403 or in accordance with prior national standards and procedures recognised as resulting in the firearms being rendered permanently unfit for use, inoperable and incapable of being converted into functioning firearms."
