[Conducting Shooting in Public Outdoor Area]
Via social media, HKAPSC has been made aware that someone has set up an imitated Practical Shooting course outdoors in a public park and conducted shooting at the site. HKAPSC is deeply concerned about and condemns this action, as it violates the principle of safe shooting and shows a complete disregard for public safety. Such action is also a breach of the Law of Hong Kong, particularly CAP. 228 Summary Offence Ordinances, Clause 4. Nuisances committed in public places, etc., (14A) knowingly or negligently discharges an air gun to the danger or annoyance of any person; and CAP. 238 Firearms and Ammunition Ordinance, Clause 20 (3)(c)(ii) A person does not commit an offence in possession of an imitation firearm if he satisfies the magistrate that he was not in possession of the imitation firearm for a purpose dangerous to the public peace, or of committing an offence, or in circumstances likely to lead to the possession of the imitation firearm for a purpose dangerous to the public peace, by himself or any other person.
If any HKAPSC member is found to have been involved in such action in a public location outdoors, he/she will be subject to disciplinary action by HKAPSC.
