It’s not too late to write to your MEP asking them to vote against this amendment which will pile on yet more restrictions to UK and European firearms enthusiasts (even some non EU countries). https://www.writetothem.com/

Joachim Dekkers, the EAA President, will be in Brussels over the next few weeks talking to MEPs and Civil servants about the situation for airsoft in Europe, current and future.

Please dont get this mixed up with the Policing and Crime Bill 2015-16. It must be confusing for most players, there’s so much going on! It’s been an incredibly tough year for UK airsoft, under so much pressure from the law makers. It’s not been dissimilar to the situation in 2006 with the VCRA. Perhaps worse.
