Gun mags belong on the top shelf

Published 23/09/2015

Many readers will be saddened but not surprised by the recent report on gun control.

Yet the gun lobby, via pro-shooting magazines, makes the idea of owning a firearm desirable. Animal Aid has long argued that such publications should be moved to the top shelf out of the sight of children, placing them in the same category as pornography and cigarettes.

Equally, given the taste for hobby killing among those who possess or who are seeking a firearm certificate, it is essential that thorough police and medical investigations are carried out.
