Firearms For The Under-18s

EDM number 521 in 2010-12, proposed by Keith Vaz on 15/07/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Firearms.

That this House notes with concern that children under the age of 18 years are able to hold licences for shotguns and other firearms; further notes that a child as young as 10 years old was awarded a licence for a shotgun by Bedfordshire Constabulary, which granted 49 similar licences in 2009; believes that children of such a young age are not responsible enough to be expected to adhere to gun control laws as stringently as is necessary; and urges the Government to review legislation relating to the award of shotguns and other firearms licences for those aged under 18 years.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
