Rosie Cooper MP

Working hard for the people of West Lancashire

16/04/12 - MP Rosie comments on air and pellet gun regulation

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:


“It is sickening and very sad when you hear stories of animals being harmed, even more so when they are injured deliberately by people using air and pellet guns. We have had previous incidents in West Lancashire where both children and animals have been injured by the completely irresponsible use of pellet and air guns.


“Cruel acts such as shooting at people and animals will mean that toughening up the current regulations and police enforcement will need to be looked at and unfortunately that may have an effect on responsible gun owners who may find that they are penalised because of the mindless use of firearms by a minority.”
