MET Police Give Out Gun Owner Data To Marketing Firm

posted on April 21, 2017

We’ve explained before how firearm confiscation is always preceded by registration. Now we learn that gun registration can have yet another pitfall.

According to a report in theregister.co.uk, London gun owners are concerned after the Metropolitan Police allegedly gave their addresses to a marketing agency for a direct mail campaign. The gun owners subsequently received a pamphlet encouraging them to buy a “firearms protection pack” that used invisible ink to mark firearms so police can use a UV light reader to see who owns stolen items.

A spokesperson for the Information Commissioner's Office told The Register: “Businesses and organizations are required under the Data Protection Act to keep people's personal data safe and secure. If people have concerns about the way an organization is handling their personal data, they can report them to us.”
