At present within the EU firearms laws are under the control of the member states. The EU has recently issued a questionare which is seen by many as an initial move in an attempt to hijack control. This is not suprising, the whole ethos of the EU is to try and micro manage every detail of life within the Union in an Orwellian fashion.
In Britain there is a growing movement for us to leave the EU, partly because of the way the thing is run. The law makers are not elected and simply impose laws on a whim. If you look on the form they say its being considered as a proposal for adoption. Nobody gets to vote on it!
The title suggests their focus is international arms trafficing but sections C and D are clearly targetted towards the private citizen and their ability to purchase and store guns and ammunition.
Members of the forum who live within the EU may want to take part. You can be sure the anti gun lobby will be mobilising its members to take part. For the rest of you its just to keep you aware of what is going on in the rest of the world.
