Firearms Medical’s update on gun license legislation changes

Legislative changes recently introduced by the government means that laws surrounding gun ownership are set to tighten further. According to the official government website, from the beginning of November, no applicant will be given a firearms license until the police have reviewed their medical information from a registered doctor, laying out whether or not the person has any relevant medical history such as mental health, neurological conditions, or substance abuse. Prior to this, it was up to the individual police forces on whether a medical was enforced or not, now it is compulsory across the UK.
