    Hopefully they will be subject to the full force of the law as it stands and that legitimate shooters will not be penalised as a result.

    You can bet your last pound that the penalty won't be nearly as bad as the publicity it has generated already. I would lay odds that the court case doesn't even get reported. "Not news worthy enough," they will say. Meanwhile we all get tarred with the same brush.
