Introduce Licencing of Spear Guns

Introduce Licencing of Spear Guns

Introduce mandatory registration for spearguns and registration of their arrows.

Why is this important?

Spearguns are a lethal weapon, capable of killing and maiming people and animals.

Recently a seal has been shot in the tail for fun at a Devon seaside resort, leaving the animal to die a slow painful death.

These weapons are lethal and currently have no registration. They and the arrows they fire should be registered, so that any arrow found in an animal or used in a crime can be identified and traced to its owner.
