1. The number of firearms seized by Police has barely risen from five years ago. In fact 2017 was down on the previous four years.

  2. The number of recovered firearms is more than the number of stolen guns by 339.

  3. This credit has repeated every year. In the last five years alone criminals are down by 2074 illegal guns.

So any claim of ‘More guns are in the hands of criminals’ is a simple lie.
