NARGC Press Release: STATUTORY INSTRUMENT S.I. No. 420 of 2019

EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES (ACQUISITION AND POSSESSION OF WEAPONS AND AMMUNITION) (AMENDMENT) REGULATIONS 2019

The National Association of Regional Game Councils (NARGC) is aware of the publication of the above Statutory Instrument (S.I.) signed by the Minister for Justice and Equality, Mr. Charles Flanagan, T.D., on August 2nd, 2019.

The Association has many concerns about the content of the said S.I. and even considers it, in part, to be contrary to existing legislation and therefore highly anomalous. The Association has sought an urgent meeting with the Minister for Justice and Equality to discuss and obtain clarification on this publication and to regularise its deficiencies and thereby safeguard the interests of law-abiding shooting men and women throughout the State.

Further comment will be issued by the Association when matters have been clarified further.

Statement ends.
