Firearms UK is an Association campaigning for the protection of firearms ownership within the UK. Primary objectives are to encourage unity and positive action within the shooting community and to promote and defend individual firearms ownership and the shooting sports.
Our website aims to provide a repertoire of news and information and to serve as an aide memoir for educating those on the fringes of our communities, such as friends and family members who are less knowledgeable about firearms and their use within the UK.
Urgent or Important Updates
The European Commission has issued a press release “European Commission strengthens control of firearms across the EU”
There are some extremely worrying aspects to their proposals, in particular the banning of semi-automatic firearms that resemble fully-automatic firearms. It would appear that they are looking to introduce bans based on appearance of the firearm, not it’s actual function.
We are investigating and will follow developments closely.
We encourage all European gun owners to start lobbying their political representatives.
