It seeks public views on how best to ensure that the police carry out their firearms licensing functions in an appropriate manner, with the introduction of statutory guidance. The new statutory guidance will apply to existing safeguards relating to firearms ownership, such as police background checks or the criteria around applicants with a history of domestic violence. The draft guidance also contains new proposals on the arrangements for assessing the medical suitability of applicants.

This consultation from the Home Office runs from 23 July to 17 September 2019.
