I'm looking for the advice on behalf of a friend, basicly the story goes that her grandfather had a couple of old shotguns and when he died they put them on the wall just for display in his memory. But after speaking to her about it, I personally think that they might in fact not be as obsolete as they think they are.
So to avoid them getting in trouble with the law for owning them I advised them to have them deactivated as they are reluctant to hand them over to be destroyed because of who they previously belonged to. But the big thing that might be an issue is the fact that they dont have a firearms licence, which could raise questions and in turn cause them problems when they submit the weapons for deactivation.
I know this is a bit of a touchy subject as its regarding the firearms laws, but what would the best way to go about this as there might be someone on here that has been in a similar situation.
