Trouble at t'(Marford) Mill? BASC says ‘nobody has been arrested’

1 June 2016 – A BASC statement seemingly addressing rumours going round the shooting community assures us that “nobody has been arrested on grounds of fraud” and nobody has been removed from their HQ by police. Eh?

The statement, published on the BASC website and spotted by Gun Trade News, reads in full:

CERTAIN internal employment issues are currently being investigated at BASC and, to protect people’s employment rights and ensure confidentiality, we are unable to say more at this time.

We can confirm that, contrary to gossip and speculation, nobody has been escorted from Marford Mill by the police and nobody has been arrested on grounds of fraud or other criminal offences.

BASC will make a further statement once proper process has been followed and completed. Until that time, our work as the UK’s largest shooting organisation will continue with the focus and determination our members expect.

UK Shooting News’ author has been hearing, over the last few weeks, some very interesting things from a number of well placed sources about goings-on within BASC.

While I am not going to publish those just yet, I have corroborated and substantiated them to my own satisfaction.

Readers will doubtless be curious about all this. Suffice to say, it’s the age-old tale of an internal power struggle – albeit one with the potential to affect the entire licensed firearms community, BASC members or not.

    As long as they kick out the FUDDS and employ someone who actually cares about gun rights and ALL firearms ownership, not just gold plated over and under shotguns.
