Hi Melter68, I have signed a petition may be the same one, I'm not sure. I do know there are a few petitions like this and the problem is that we need to get all of the UK shooters to sign the same one.

We need 100,000 signatures to get this debated and unless something like the NRA get behind it I don't think it will get off the ground.

I'm also pretty sure that only UK citizens can sign.....

Yup, I attempted to sign it but couldn’t complete it because I’m not a UK citizen. Oh well, you have my support and I’m sure everyone on this forum is hoping the effort is successful. You have until August, so I think you have a good shot at hitting the 100,000 mark.

Just signed , I can't believe that just because some nutter goes mad with a gun everyone is penalised.Yeah you have to be a UK citizen to sign. Thank God N.Ireland still has common sense laws in that regard. In fact as of December if I have a firearms licensing grant of rifle or pistol on my FAC I can now buy like for like over the counter at any registered dealer and they do the paperwork there and then just the same as shotguns have been here now for the past few years. Good luck with the petition.

As it has already been said. theres been loads of these. There was one advertised in gunmart for months. The last one ran for a year and only got 22,000 signatures. You need 100,000 just for them to look at it. Unless all uk organisations get behind each other it wont happen. You really need the likes of BASC, UK NRA, NSRA, Target shooters association, UKPSA all to band together to promote one pertition. However it is unlikley as they all have diffrent ideas of what they would like and diffrent organisational inferstructures. One day mabe

Wish I could have signed but unfortunately being an American citizen was precluded. Keep fighting the good fight guys and I'm sure you'll get those 100,000 needed signatures.

I say we do an even trade, let you guys have all our gun grabbers and we get all your gun "nuts". I'd go for that. We can prolly do a decent shepherds pie and fish and chips over here... and we have plenty of tea. you guys will have to make your own damn black pudding though =P

Would if I could. Good luck with getting the 100,000 signatures required.

Do you have an organization like the NRA in England?

Good point I mean we can't sign but if you guys have a pro gun group we can donate some money while our dollars are still worth something =P

What y'all need is a little thing called Liberty. I hope you get it but don't get too used to it.

The idiots here don't appreciate it and are slowly giving it away.

Sounds like the way (as I understand it) the same way that you folks lost your rights. The shotgunners and rifle guys stood by while handguns were banned as it didn't concern them, then the shotgunners watched the rifle rights go away because it didn't affect their manner of shooting. Divide and conquer is a tried and true playbook for centuries. To reverse it, all of the various disciplines will need to support one another and regain those liberties one at a time, step by step. Best wishes for a string of small victories which add up.

Good luck!

I'd sign if I could, but my family left in the late 1600's! :D

It's hard to gain back lost liberty, but worth the struggle!

Just read on UK-NRA's site that these E-Petitions can be created to force parliment to debate an issue. If this goes well I'd encourage you to get more started.
