I think eventually all section 2 shotguns will be on section 1 not that it would make a difference to public safety.
They can legislate all they want it won’t make a difference there will always been one that slips through and unfortunately we pay the price for it.
A few years back when I used to shoot down the range there was a bloke who shot there who had an argument with he’s boss so he threaten to shoot him.He’s boss obviously knowing he had firearms and concerned reported the incident to the police and a firearms team came in the early hours and swiftly removed he's guns and certificates.
Now I don’t know what the situation was but some how he managed to get them back around 9months later and started shooting down the range again.A few months after he got into a bar fight and then the firearms was permanently removed from him.
Now in my opinion if assault or you threaten someone in such a way you shouldn’t really have them back at all.
