when, if ever, will peeple finally accept the danger of air guns. they are not a toy - they are a weapon and should be treated in the same way as any other gun. right, crims will still get hold of them but at least it might stop any random bully having one.

we can do with less restrictions on our lives, not more. far more people get killed and injured every year by doing DIY than by guns. Punching people on the nose is illegal but it hasn't stopped it happening.

People who have those airguns like any gun should have a permit for them and be trained.

no they aren't. Anyone can have an airgun with a power rating of not over 12 ft lbs. Under 18s must have an adult with them to buy one. Anyone can have a shotgun , if the police approve the application. For other (rifled) guns and Semi auto shotguns with a magazine of more than 2 shells, a full FAC license is needed. Rifled hand guns are illegal. it is the right of all people to own a shotgun, the police are allowed to object on certain grounds and a grant can be refused.
