The cat is out of the bag now…
New attempt (16.11.2016!) by the EU commission to ban specifically:
- Civilian firearms of “AR 15 family”, also derivates
- Civilian firearms of “AK47 family”, also derivates
- ALL detachable magazines above 10 rounds (also for handguns, repeating-firearms, rimfires etc.)
- Strong regulation of magazines and semi-automatic firearms
- Stricest evaluation of exemptions
- Immediate decision on bans, since “EU citizens” demand more protection!

Are we now in fashion business?
First of all – thank you for you generous donations, it made this whole campaign possible.
And no, we are not in fashion business.
Firearms United has now successfully concluded a campaign, the goal of which was to inform Members of the European Parliament about the flaws in the current firearms directive proposal. We have essentially, assembled an information package, filled with facts, statistics, introductionary letter and Firearms United key fob/chamber flag. The graphical design for the key fob was borrowed from Swedish enthusiast. Keeping people informed is still the name of our game. That being said, the information package included 28 reasons why the magazine ban is unworkable from both legal and enthusiasts perspective.
Qu’est-il finalement sorti du vote de la commission IMCO ?
Comme vous l’avez peut-être remarqué, nous n’avions pas encore publié le compte-rendu du vote de l’IMCO de mercredi dernier. Il y a deux raisons à cela : tout d’abord, l’équipe de Firearms United s’est épuisée avec le stress des efforts consacrés à défendre notre position jusqu’ici. Ensuite, avant de vous les communiquer au plus vite, il a fallu prendre le temps d’en analyser les tenants et les aboutissants.
