13 July 2016 – EU MEPs are to vote on the EU gun ban plan today, according to campaign group Firearms United.
UKSN’s author recommends you read their Facebook page, and comments on their posts, to keep up to date with the situation.
A Facebook comment by UK MEP Vicky Ford, the EU “rapporteur” for the gun ban, says:
The parliament compromises do not include a requirement for 5 yr medical tests, as of today the compromises do not include limitations on magazine capacity, sports shooters will be able to benefit from exemptions to hold Cat a firearms, the restrictions proposed by the Commission have been significantly more focused, reloading and self loading is permitted under the parliament text.
Nobody seems quite sure exactly what the EU Parliament is voting on, it seems.
