The use and distribution of guns and other firearms is strictly controlled in Scotland. It is an offence to possess a firearm without a licence or to be in possession of a loaded firearm in a public place without a reasonable excuse. It’s also a crime to recklessly discharge a firearm, whether injury is caused or not.
