Full text of the above article:

The former teacher of the Plymouth incel killer has said police "failed catastrophically" in handing him a gun licence as details of violence and mental health concerns emerged.
Jake Davison, 22, killed five people including his mother and a three-year-old girl before turning the gun on himself on Thursday night.

Davison was under care of NHS mental health teams and the local authority and had been reported to police on a number of occasions, it has emerged.

Despite agencies across Plymouth being aware of his problems and history of violence, he was given his shotgun licence back a month going on his murderous rampage.
Concerns emerged about Davison's behaviour when he was at primary school, where it is claimed that, at the age of 10, he hit a friend so hard that he broke his own wrist.

Family sources have told The Telegraph that he had been receiving treatment for his mental health problems since he was a teenager. He had autism, ADHD and depression and went to Mount Tamar School, a special needs establishment for children who cannot be dealt with in mainstream education.

Jonathan Williams, one of his teachers at the school, said he would have had an education health care plan, which should have seen him monitored by the authorities until he was 25.

"Someone simply didn't do their homework on the firearms certificate issue," he said. "The so-called 'multi-agency' approach to safeguarding appears to have failed catastrophically – unless it is somehow reasonable that a police officer read and understand a detailed history of OCD, anger issues, depression and other associated conditions, and then decide that the same applicant should be allowed to own a firearm."

A man who was attacked by Davison in 2016 claimed he had been on the police's radar since at least that year. Scott Hobbs said Davison had launched an unprovoked attack on him outside a supermarket, punching him to the floor and hitting him repeatedly in the head before pushing his pregnant partner to the ground.

Mr Hobbs told The Sunday Mirror he had called police and alerted them again when Davison threatened to shoot him in the supermarket the following day, but officers "didn't seem to be taking it very seriously". Police spoke to Davison but did not arrest him, and told Mr Hobbs there was "nothing to worry about".

Since that time, Davison posted a series of hate-filled misogynistic rants on social media in which he describes himself as an "incel" – someone who is involuntarily celibate and blames women for his inability to find a partner.

Despite his long history of problems, Devon and Cornwall police issued him with a shotgun licence in 2018, it is understood.
It was removed in December last year after an allegation of assault made three months earlier. It is believed that allegation related to an attack on a 16-year-old boy who Davison kicked and punched in the head. When a girl tried to intervene, it is claimed he hit and spat at her and screamed: "I f------ hate women."

Because he had no previous convictions, Davison was let off and told to attend an anger management course. After he attended it, his shotgun licence was returned last month.

At the same time his behaviour was escalating, and in recent months his 51-year-old mother Maxine, who was his first victim, is said to have begged local NHS services for help but was told they were too busy.

Friends claim that, in December, the keen bodybuilder started taking amphetamines and anabolic steroids, which made his anger problems worse. A day before his killing spree, he was banned from the social media site Reddit after harassing a 16-year-old girl, saying he was "entitled" to sex.

The history of intervention from police, the NHS and the local authority has led to mounting questions over why Davison was granted a shotgun licence and then given it back as his behaviour spiralled out of control.

Devon and Cornwall Police has said it cannot comment on his firearms licence, as its handling of the matter is being investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

It was something cringe but forgetable.

I got banned from a UK Shooting Facebook page for posting about it. Apparently saying someone 'drilled' someone is a bit much for British gun owners.

I await the inevitable backlash from the Conservatives (pushed by the rozzers).

You ready for your shotgun to become section 1 Sloggy?

Ugh, don't get me started. It was hard enough to get a shotgun certificate before this happened. I worry that police are going to start treating every aspie as a potential spree shooter. It does make me wonder how this guy slipped through the net, though.

I'll let you into a secret, most police forces are incompetent.
