Minister for Policing Damian Green said:
“This new Home Office guidance clearly sets out a process which police forces should follow when considering an application from someone with a history of domestic violence.
“It should also ensure the views and experiences of victims of domestic abuse are carefully and sensitively taken into account.
“I am confident that this guidance will continue to protect the public from people who are not suitable to hold firearms.”
