Evidently Marshall hasn’t spoken to Chief Constable Andy Marsh, ACPO’s head of firearms licensing, who was responsible for trying to quadruple the cost of a firearm certificate. That move was a cynical exercise in using the licensed firearms community as a profitable cash cow for police activities.
