Where have all the air weapons gone?

The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

Sir, The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment said there were 500,000 air weapons in Scot­land and that own­ers had to ac­quire a li­cence from Po­lice Scot­land or hand in their weapons be­fore Jan­uary 1, 2017.

This put Po­lice Scot­land un­der even more pres­sure as no ad­di­tional funds or man­power were made avail­able.

The lat­est fig­ures in­di­cate that nearly 21,000 weapons were handed in and that 12,384 li­cences were is­sued. That is only 33,000 out of the re­puted 500,000. Clark Cross, Spring­field Road Lin­lith­gow.
