Gun owners warned to renew licence in time

Firearms certificate holders were today warned to renew their certificates six weeks in advance or risk losing their licence.

The PSNI has said all applications for renewal must be received by the Firearms and Explosives Branch six weeks before expiration. Failure to apply in time could result in police refusing to renew the licence.

Police said they will continue to issue reminders 12 weeks ahead of the expiry date, but insisted that the onus was on owners to ensure their paperwork was up to date.
