Gun Law Review

EDM number 691 in 1993-94, proposed by Alan Milburn on 28/02/1994.

That this House expresses its alarm at the recent wave of gun killings in the North East of England involving licensed firearms owners; believes that gun licences are too easy to come by and too difficult to revoke; urges the Home Secretary to conduct an urgent review of the gun laws better to protect public safety; and in particular seeks changes to the law that would impose a more rigorous test on those applying for gun licences, limit gun use to responsible adults who can demonstrate an absolute need for a licence, strengthen police powers to refuse or revoke gun licences and prevent, wherever possible, guns being stored in domestic premises where they are prone to theft and misuse.

This motion has been signed by a total of 60 MPs.
