The following petition, forwarded by the Foundation for European Societies of Arms Collectors (FESAC), has been sent to all European National Governing Bodies in shooting sports, inviting individual members to sign the petition against the EP draft directive which may, if passed, restrict legal gun use and possession within the EU. To date almost 125,000 people have signed the petition, but we need many more!
The arguments for and against the proposed ban on lead ammunition continue and it is important that we as members of a major NGB in shooting sports make our views known.
