    Do Your Bit To Save Our Sport - 01/08/2007
    by signing this online petition against the creation of new laws to further limit the freedom of airgunners, when all that is needed is for existing laws to be properly enforced. You can sign the online petition here at E-Petitions

    Here is some more information from the creator of the petition -
    We, the undersigned, petition the Prime Minister to help us protect and support our sport of air gun shooting, by pressing for policing and enforcement of existing, already strict, restrictions and legislation, and to not add further restrictions on their ownership and use by law-abiding people.
    We believe that further restrictions on our sports and pastimes (such as are being currently discussed in Scotland) are not only unwarranted and unfair, but unnecessary, and will penalise only the responsible, sensible and law-abiding majority of airgun shooters.
    Air guns are not only used for sports in the Olympics and Commonwealth games, where Great Britain is very successful, but also provide an entry into other shooting sports. Airguns also play a vital role in pest control where firearms and other methods may be unsuitable.
    We want to see the small number of criminals that misuse airguns caught by the police and prosecuted to the fullest extent of existing laws. We do not want the creation of more new laws which will adversely affect the law-abiding while allowing criminals to continue their illegal activities.

    I made a few copies of the petition and the link and took them along to a few guns shops I frequent, they were only too pleased to post them in the shop. Might help to spread the word.

    If everybody here took a copy of the petition to their local gunshop and asked them to display it in the shop AND make a point of mentioning it to customers and asking them to mention it to their friends too, this figure would soon rise.
