I'm not posting this to start another bitch talk about what we can and can't to for our sport and which NGA is worth tuppence or not.

There is currently a petition

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/223361

to Remove articles 28-35 of the offensive weopns bill currently going through parliament (of which we are all very aware of).

I'm not a fan of petitons, BUT if we can't even be bothered to sign a petition, which takes all of 1 minute of our vauable time, then we really are a disunited and pitiful group of shooters. It ONLY has 1644 signatures - this will surely embolden the government to think that, we, the shooting community don't really have any cohesion and backbone for a fight to keep our rights!

As an aside, there is also currently a petiton to Abolish all subsidies for shotgun and firearms licences which has 3,191 signatures against it!

The anti-gunners are after our guns and won't let up unless we can show we are not going to lie down at take another one up the a**e as we have done in the past.

PLEASE sign this petition, PLEASE pass it on to all your contacts. If you want to comment please do so, AFTER you have signed the petiton. Don't tell me it's not worth your time. It's taken you longer to read thsi post!!
