    Brexiteers accused of using firearms debate for 'proxy row' over EU withdrawal

    Prominent Brexiteers have been accused of attempting to hijack a firearms debate in parliament in a "proxy row" over Britain's departure from the European Union. It comes after MPs from both the Conservative and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - hostile to Theresa May's Brexit plans - tabled an amendment to a government bill aimed at reclassifying certain firearms. The proposed change has the support of dozens of Conservative MPs and aims at preventing a government-imposed ban on high-energy rifles, "over 13,600 joules at the muzzle".
