Excellent Reviews for Laura Saunsbury’s Book on Firearms Law

In December 2011 Sweet & Maxwell published The British Firearms Law Handbook, which our firearms law specialist Laura Saunsbury co-authored with barristers Nick Doherty and Helen Dobby. Since then the book has been the subject of critical acclaim in a number of reviews published in shooting journals and also the legal press.


, the web-based legal update service for criminal lawyers, described the book in a recent review as, “the nearest to a dedicated practitioner text on the subject as you would ever want”. The review, which was circulated by email to criminal solicitors and barristers throughout the country on 15 June 2012, concluded, “It is difficult to see how any criminal law practitioner dealing with a firearms case can properly ignore this book”.

In the shooting press the book has been widely applauded as a valuable guide for shooting enthusiasts. In the July 2012 issue of Sporting Gun magazine, the reviewer David Frost wrote, “You might expect the book to be full of legal jargon but in fact it’s written in a very user friendly style”. In another review published in the summer 2012 issue of Keeping the Balance, the magazine of the National Gamekeeper’s Organisation, it was given the following praise, “The book has much to commend it for the ordinary gun user”
