From the Sportsmans association

HM Goverment e-petition
December 13th, 2011 We would like to draw our members attention the e-petition on the HM Goverment site.

The text of the petition is:

Reclassify .22 pistols as Section 1

Responsible department: Home Office

The Home Office should reclassify .22 calibre pistols as Section 1 firearms. This would permit legitimate sportsmen & sportswomen to practice competitive target shooting sports as require by many disciplines, including Olympic qualification, in this country. There would be no risk to the public, sporting firearms are not linked to criminal activity.

Please pop over and put your name to it as all support will help.
