Firearm Seizures in North Somerset

Question

I have an enquiry regarding firearm seizures in North Somerset.

How many firearms have been seized by police in North Somerset from November 1, 2015 to November, 1 2016?

Can you list the guns that have been seized by make/model?

Answer

We have provided the below information relevant to your request.

We have taken the home office definition of ‘Firearm’ from the guide on firearms licensing law, April 2016, to answer your request which means “a lethal barrelled weapon of any description from which any shot, bullet or other missile can be discharged. This includes any prohibited weapon, whether it is such a lethal weapon.” The detail below is what is centrally recorded about those firearms.

Some of these firearms will have been held due to expiration of firearms/shotgun certificates, and may have been returned once the appropriate permits were obtained.
