After a hunt, forget your rifle on car roof and leaves to go home. Only along the way does the hunter realize he has left the weapon abandoned on the roof of the vehicle. He stops immediately but, as was to be expected, there is no trace of the shotgun. The hunter turns around and as quickly as possible returns to where he parked the car. Of the rifle, which before being forgotten it had been placed in its case, however, there is no trace. We can only imagine the owner's agitation: not keeping a weapon with the necessary diligence is a crime.
Fortunately, the story is resolved with a happy ending: the rifle is found by a local person who delivers it to the carabinieri. Case closed? Not exactly. Forgetfulness had serious consequences. The hunter was sued for failure to keep weapons. The accused was then admitted to the oblation: by paying 516 euros he extinguished the crime. However, there were also consequences on the administrative plan: the Police Headquarters rejected the request for renewal of the firearms license for hunting purposes, believing that the hunter was not a fully reliable subject. The latter, however, presented a new application asking for the release of the rifle port for hunting use.
To the application he enclosed all the necessary documentation to support the psycho-physical suitability of the applicant (following the new rehabilitation examination for hunting). Title that was first released and then immediately withdrawn. "A doubtful judgment is formulated - wrote the Police Headquarters - about the possession by -omissis - of the requirements of reliability and good conduct provided for by the current legislation for the issue of police authorizations in the field of weapons, not being able to guarantee, at the moment, the ability to use the title properly". The hunter, who also uses the rifle for his work, responded by challenging the denial before the TAR. Appeal which was accepted by the administrative judges. The hunter can therefore go back to shooting, perhaps paying more attention to where he puts the shotgun (The Adige).
