Confiscation of firearms based on hearsay
"Essex Police checked details of licence holders to see if they had ever been the perpetrator of domestic violence, even if they had not been arrested, charged or found guilty."
How worrying is that? Very worrying. The fact that you can be denied a firearm or have a firearm removed from your possession because someone reports you for domestic violence or other violent offense.
Lets not dilute the issue by focusing just on firearms. What about everything else this could lead to? No need for a conviction to use asset seizure laws, hearsay is enough now!
John Lowe probably would have stabbed his wife and daughter had he not had a shot gun to use!
