The United Kingdom's National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS) is conducting a new gun surrender program from Nov. 13 to Nov. 26 after gun crime in England and Wales increased by more than a quarter in the past year.
The Office for National Statistics found a 27 percent increase in
crimes involving firearms during its most recent review of crime data.
Despite a near ban on the civilian ownership of handguns the review
found crimes committed with handguns increased by 25 percent and
accounted for the majority of gun crimes. The agency said the increases
in 2016 were part of a multiyear trend.
"We just need another amnesty, then all the bad people will turn in their guns and stop committing crimes with them!" Lather, rinse, repeat every so often.
