The Government's decision to ban self-contained air cartridge guns without offering owners compensation will lead to "widespread non-compliance", a firearms expert has claimed. Thousands of such guns, which can be easily converted to fire live ammunition, could end up kept illegally under people's beds, Mike Yardley said.
