- Firearms and Offensive Weapons
Firearms in the UK are illegal without a 5-year firearm certificate or a shotgun certificate which is issued by the police. A firearm can be described as a lethal barrelled weapon, a prohibited weapon or a relevant component part in relation to either of these.
Offensive weapons relate to any weapon or item that can be used in an offensive manor. These include BB Guns, CS sprays and explosives etc. There have been recent changes in legislation in relation to offensive weapons meaning that some items that weren’t deemed offensive earlier in the year prior to the change in law are now illegal to own.
Any damage to another person’s property without lawful excuse, equals as criminal damage.
Public order offences also cover self-defence. Self-defence is the use of reasonable force to defend one’s self or another.
