That this House views with alarm the growing use of BB guns for unlawful and dangerous purposes, and particularly notes with horror the recent motiveless shooting of Mr David Hazel with a BB gun which has left him paralysed from the waist down; further notes that such guns are easily available for purchase; and calls upon the Government to consider as a matter of urgency whether the sale or possession of BB guns should be regulated as though they were a firearm or banned.
