theEuropean Federation of Associations forHunting and Conservation (FACE),had firmly opposed the original proposal andwas pleased to see compromises.FACE’s efforts were successful in preserving the B7 category (semi-automatic rifles resembling fully automatic weapons),aswell as a regulation for the conversion of rifles, which can thereby continue to be used for civilian purposes, while sport shooterswill be exempt fromthemagazine capacity limit. FACEparticipated in the

discussions,bringing forward the position ofEuropean hunters aiming at ensuring that the rights of hunterswere appropriately defended and the freedomof the legal firearms users upheld. FACEpresidentMichl

Ebner commented: “FACE successfully represented the rights of hunters,dispelling any suspicion that legal firearms ownersmight in anyway be posing a threat to security.Tis is an important achievement.”
