The European Parliament had on 23rd February its first exchange of views on the proposed amendments of the Firearms Directive. A number of proposals were discussed that would see restrictions on the licensed use of firearms by reducing the ability for under-18s to shoot, standard medical tests and the banning of certain self-loading rifles. The meeting was a particularly lively affair with some extremely strong views put to the rapporteur of the project, Vicky Ford MEP for the East of England.
