No 10 rejects gun calls

Number 10 has rejected calls for the Government to revisit gun laws after the fatal shooting of four people in Easington over the New Year.

This morning, the Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "The firearms laws we have in place are among the toughest in the world. The purpose of that legislation is to protect public safety and at the same time, ensure that controls are practical and proportionate.

"On the specific case [Easington, County Durham] it would not be appropriate to comment on an ongoing police investigation." However, No 10 added that it was still looking at the Home Affairs Select Committee report on possible changes to implementation of the law, rather than the law itself.

Local MP Grahame Morris had called for a debate on gun control in Parliament, saying there were some "big issues" arising from the police investigation and that there should be a "considered and measured look at the outcome".
