Look forward to bmews comments on this one.
And hey, it’s for the kids. Keep that in mind.

Of course, goes without saying but I will anyway. 
Some folks will always do as they please regardless of laws and rules of behavior.  It’s usually the law abiding and those who don’t plan any sort of crime or misadventure, who will register or else turn in their air guns.  Which of course leaves ..... have to think about this some. Tuff one to call.


Police Scotland plan ‘surrender’ campaign to allow air gun owners without permits to hand in weapons

Chris Green, Scotland Editor
The Independent

Air gun owners in Scotland will be given a six month window to apply for a licence for their weapons before new laws controlling their use come into force at the end of this year, the Scottish Government has announced.

Anyone in Scotland who owns an air gun without a licence or permit after 31 December will face a fine or in some cases imprisonment of up to two years. In the rest of the UK, licences for the weapons are not required.

Owners will be able to apply to Police Scotland for an air weapon certificate from 1 July. The force is also planning a “surrender” campaign to allow people to hand in their unwanted weapons before the new legislation takes effect. It is estimated that there are currently around half a million unlicensed air weapons in Scotland.

The Scottish Government decided to introduce the licensing scheme, which critics have described as draconian and unnecessary, in the wake of the death of two-year-old Andrew Morton. The toddler was killed by an airgun in 2005 after being hit in the head by a pellet near his home in the Easterhouse area of Glasgow.

The Scottish Justice Secretary, Michael Matheson, said: “This Government has a long-standing commitment to eradicating gun crime in Scotland and this new legislation will better protect our communities by taking these potentially lethal weapons out of the hands of those who would misuse them.

“Every day police, the public and animal welfare groups have to face the results of air weapon misuse, from anti-social behaviour to horrific and deliberate injuries to wildlife, pets and very occasionally people. We believe this legislation strikes the right balance between protecting communities and allowing legitimate shooting in a safe environment to continue.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
