Firearm offences up in Notts

“FIREARMS offences in Notts rose by nearly 20% in the past year, according to new Home Office figures. There were 240 offences, excluding air weapons, between April 1 2007 and March 31 2008.

The figure is an 18% rise on the 196 firearms offences in 2006/07.

The figure is also higher than the 233 offences recorded in 2003/04, when Nottingham was suffering unprecedented levels of gun crime.

Responding to the increase, Deputy Chief Constable Howard Roberts said: “Since its peak in 2004/05, Notts Police has worked hard to tackle the problem of gun crime in the county, recording successive falls in the number of firearms incidents in both 2005/06 and 2006/07.”

    It’s a shame really. The city is fab but statistics like this put it in an extremely ugly light.

    These types of violence or possession of Firearms can be avoided by tough act like HR-45 in USA. USA government just passed a HR-45 act to have a database of Firearms owners which contains photo, residential address, finger prints of Firearms owners. I think by applying this type of act absolutely decrease offences.
