Airgun crime figure 'frightening'

PUBLISHED June 16, 2005

An airgun crime is committed in Scotland at least once a day, according to figures released by the SNP.

Nationalists said there was an urgent need for a licensing scheme to be introduced north of the border.
SNP deputy leader Nicola Sturgeon said 415 offences involving air weapons were reported to the police in 2003.
