      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

BASC Press Release, Pre-Election Shooting Promo

BASC highlights value of shooting ahead of General Election

 

May 15, 2017

 

BASC has re-launched its dedicated general election campaign website to allow members and those who shoot to inform their parliamentary candidates in the run-up to the general election on 8th June.

 

The website will allow people to see candidates’ views on shooting and to email candidates to establish their position if they have not recorded one. It will also enable people to promote shooting to candidates and to invite them to find out more.

 

BASC chairman Peter Glenser said: “Prospective MPs need to know that shooting is a force for good for the economy, for conservation and for social wellbeing.

 

“The website will allow voters who care about shooting to find out more about their candidates. Candidates will be left in no doubt that shooting matters to their constituents and it will provide us with a good indication of where MPs stand in the next parliament.

 

“Shooting generates £2 billion for the economy every year and generates 3.9 million work days on conservation. It also supports the equivalent of 74,000 full-time jobs. BASC will make the resources available to ensure that shooting’s voice is heard.”

 

Sophie Hutchinson, BASC’s political affairs manager, said: “You don’t have to be a BASC member to use the site and we would urge everyone to engage with this process and encourage others to do the same.

 

“It is vital that we continue to promote the value of shooting in Parliament and knowing a candidate’s stance on shooting is of enormous value. You can also use this opportunity to offer candidates the opportunity to find out more about shooting in their local area.”
