May moots extra gun checks

May moots extra gun checks
The Home Office is considering extra checks for those applying for gun licences.

Home Secretary Theresa May has indicated that applicants could be asked to prove that their current or recent partners have consented to the application.

Ministers are examining if the extra check could "reduce the risk to domestic violence victims", she said.

Her comments came in a letter to the Home Affairs Committee. It advised that MPs that the Government was working with the Association of Chief Police Officers on how to strengthen "guidance on how reports of domestic violence should be treated by police considering firearms applications".
