MP comments on Home Office air weapon review

Commenting on a Home Office statement today (10 October) confirming a government review of the regulation of air weapons Karin Smyth MP (Bristol South), who called the debate that led to the announcement, said:

“This review is an important step forward and provides an opportunity to improve the safety and security of these weapons so we avoid further tragedies of the type that devastated the Studley family.

“It is important that all those who want to see changes – to protect people and animals – voice their views because this is the start of a process, not the end. The hard work begins now.”
