Airgun shooting in Palma.

12-09-2020Ultima Hora

A teenage boy was shot in the back outside his house in the Levante district of Palma on Saturday.

It’s thought the shot came from the balcony of a building on the corner of Carrer dels Foners and Carrer del Pare Guillem Vives.

The boy was taken to Son Espases Hospital for treatment and doctors said the wound was superficial and he was not seriously hurt.

It’s not known who fired the shot or whether it was intentional but an incident report has been filed with Police.

A licence is not required for an airgun in the Balearic Islands.

Cat: it is not a fire arm. It is an air gun, which is perfectly legal to buy and does not need a license, (as mentioned in the article), as it does not fall under any fire arms laws. So there is nothing to fight for and hence the Police does not do a lot about it. It doesn´t make what happened acceptable, but you are barking up the wrong tree.

This is NOT OK. ALL firearms should be licensed, and I hope this poor child’s parents fight for that result. But the fact that the police are sweeping it under the rug because they’re too busy fining people for breathing fresh air does not look promising.
