All GPs must help patients obtain firearms licences if requested, BMA says


Dear 5.52pm, could I just mention as a legal firearms owner and a 'retired' doctor and firearms owner, fire arms owners too are being caught up in the middle of all these politics. My husband shoots for Scotland (as do I) and he is the captain of a successful Scottish rifle team. He previously competed in the Commonweath games. He also is regularly called upon to put severly road injured animals out of their misery. He also occasionally uses shotgun. He also uses rifles for stalking deer or rabbits due to the rural nature of his job. Please don't forget some have to have firearms licences as part of their work as well as part of their leisure activities.
