The Home Affairs Committee have stated their intention of publishing their report before Christmas, although with the vast amount of evidence given to them, It would seem to be a massive task to do that - I'd have thought early next year would be more likely - but we'll see.
When their report is published we'll have to study it carefully to see what problems or opportunities there might be for our sport, and take whatever action is appropriate at the time.
I'd like to thank every shooter who took the time to write to the Home Affairs Committe and their MPs on the subject of firearms control - your work has been vital to our case!
Please let me know and I'll do so.
We appreciate your kind words!
As soon as it's published we'll post it on the BASC website (assuming we get permission to do that) and we'll study the recommendations carefully.
Remember that whatever recommendations the committee makes, they are still just that recommendations: it's up to the government to pass laws as they see fit. You might like to view the video of the Secretary of State - James Brokenshire - and his response to the committee during the last oral evidence session. It's at the end of http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Main/Playe ... ingId=6999 . He uses the terms "measured" "proportionate" "evidence" etc quite a bit.
I note Alun Michael's continued involvement in this important matter.
James Brokenshire MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Crime Prevention, Home Office appears to be sensible.
Looks like H O Guidance will be updated to cover FAC holders, present and future, with criminal records.
