Wilnecote, Tamworth -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/23/2016 -- Air gun owners in Scotland have until October 31st to ensure that they have applied the relevant licences – if this information is neglected, air weapon owners could risk a hefty fine or in some cases up to two years imprisonment. It is vital that all owners apply for firearms certificates as soon as possible so that when the new laws come into place in December this year they are able to keep their weapons without severe consequences.

Once the new laws from Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) come into effect it will be a criminal offence to have an air gun without a permit or licence. This change is being made in order to make it harder for people to get access to air weapons, improve public safety and reduce gun crime. Even if people do not intent on using their weapons, certificates are still needed and recently Michael Matheson Scotland's cabinet secretary for justice has been reminding people of this on a regular basis.

Since revealing the new changes and with the Police Scotland's surrender campaign, an abundance of air weapons that are no longer wanted have bene handed into the Police however, it has become apparent that there's still a great number of airgun owners whom have neither handed in their weapons nor applied for a licence. It is important that anyone who knows an airgun owner ensures that they know about the new law.

A spokesperson from dominating air rifle supplier Solware was keen to comment saying, "It is incredibly easy to apply for an air gun licence online, and the application is process is very straight forward – there is no reason why anyone would not be able to do this. If anyone requires further information regarding this, has any questions, or would like to know about the laws in other parts of the UK – we are available to talk to over the phone and can also be contacted by email."
