Back in the stone age

Sporting Gun - - Letters -

Why, in this dig­i­tal age, are we told to carry our cer­tifi­cates when out shoot­ing? Can’t the po­lice check them on­line?

David says: Most of the world has gone dig­i­tal but firearms li­cens­ing hasn’t pro­gressed much be­yond the stone age. The law al­lows a con­sta­ble to seize your guns if you are un­able to pro­duce a cer­tifi­cate. He or she should be able to check your bona fides on­line, but it is not clear that this works in all force ar­eas. Bet­ter safe than sorry.
