To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on re-examining the conditions under which non-UK residents can legally possess firearms in Scotland.

Firearms legislation is reserved to Westminster, with the exception of air weapons. Non-UK residents who wish to possess firearms in Scotland require a visitor's permit, which are granted subject to checks by Police Scotland.
