Winnipeg Police Service: Handgun Ban Won’t Stop Criminals

Constable Rob Carver, Winnipeg Police Service, on handgun bans.

When we seize handguns, the handguns are always almost 100% in the possession of people who have no legal right to possess them. They’re almost always stolen or illegally obtained.

I simply don’t see, as a 27-year veteran, how adding another layer of law will make any difference anywhere in this country.

There are handguns all over. They’re all illegal and they’re in the hands of criminals. And the people that legitimately own them, their [guns are] in safes and being taken to gun clubs. The two sections don’t intersect.

I guess it might make some people feel good, but it won’t change the threat level one iota.
