The Government received a wide range of views in response to last year’s consultation on firearms licensing.

We are carefully considering all the comments received before publishing our response, which will set out what action we intend to take to further strengthen the controls on firearms. I cannot give an exact timescale for publication but I expect this to be shortly.
