Police Chief Evan Bray says handgun ban not needed in Regina

Regina police chief Evan Bray says there is no need for a handgun ban to be established in the city.
Speaking this week at a Board of Police Commissioners meeting, Bray said it is the opinion of the Regina Police Service that doing that wouldn’t accomplish much when it comes to reducing crime..
“Predominantly, firearm-related crime in our community are not committed with handguns.” Bray said. “It’s long-barrelled rifles. shotguns, sawed-off, whatever you want to say.  Even replica guns prove a bigger problem in the community than handguns.
Gun seizures are happening frequently in Regina with 57 alone happening in January according to monthly crime numbers released by Regina Police this week.
