Just found out .22 Air rifle needs license. What should I do?

Post by serotono » Sat Jan 04, 2020 4:11 am

I stumbled upon the fact today, while surfing the internet, that .22 air rifles will need license, no matter the fpe. I have a 20 year old local made .22 Air Rifle, (which has exempted category embossed on the spring housing) and a .22 Air Pistol. What should I do? Should I run to the local police station and declare I already had two .22 air guns and I just learned they need license? What will they do? Will they ask me to deposit the air guns until I get a license? Or will they indict me because I have a now-made-illegal rifle? Anybody have any experience?
