A newly proposed air weapons licensing scheme is impractical and will not achieve the desired effect of reducing air weapon crime, the Law Society of Scotland warned today, September 30.
Proposals put forward by the Scottish Government in the Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Bill are far reaching and take forward a number of licensing areas, including alcohol, taxis and scrap metal, as well as seeking to introduce a new licensing scheme for air weapons and sexual entertainment venues.
Under the proposals, anyone who possesses an air weapon will need to apply for an air weapons certificate, which will cover all weapons held by that individual. There will be no requirement for each individual weapon to be listed on that certificate.
Archie Maciver, convener of the Society’s licensing law committee said: “Under the proposals, the air weapon certificate will apply to the person, not the weapon. In practical terms, without a narration or description of each individual weapon the police will have no way of knowing how many air weapons are in circulation, and in the absence of serial numbers, as with shotguns, these weapons will remain untraceable.”
If only the law abiding register and will therefore be first port of call whenever there is an incident in the area, as many of us know many older airguns were never stamed with a serial number and lets face it your average crim' will just file off the number.
You have to ask... What's the point of the new powers in the first place?
