We are reviewing the regulation of air weapons in England and Wales, and we have asked for the views of interested parties by 6 February 2018.

The review is looking at issues such as manufacturing standards, secure storage and whether current arrangements are sufficient to prevent children gaining access to air weapons. We will also take account of the arrangements in Scotland and Northern Ireland where air weapons are subject to a licensing regime. We will publish the outcome of the review in due course.
