We at the Blog wanted to check that our population of shooters was stable and healthy.

So we asked police to provide the number of new shooters applying for a gun license each year, for the last fifteen years.

Here is the reply:


We assume that this true.

So Police don’t even keep this basic data.

Most frustrating.

But hey, the Police Union believe that they can handle record keeping for over a million guns.

Yeah… Nah.
