As Colin Greenwood, the Chief Inspector of the West Yorkshire Constabulary, has correctly observed: "There is no case... in which [gun] controls can be shown to have restricted the flow of weapons to criminals, or in any way reduced crime."

...
The legislation of the 1960s, which gave Britain the strictest firearms control in the western world, was in Greenwood's view the result partly of a political trade-off with the abolition of the death penalty, partly based on ignorance of facts and misinterpretation of data connected with firearms and crime.
...
In 1972, in the only academic study ever made of British firearms legislation and its effects, Greenwood showed that none of the legislation had been based on proper research, and that all if it had been a complete failure in controlling the criminal use of firearms, which had increased often dramatically - after every act of firearms control.

Writing in the 1992 publication Criminal Statistics England and Wales , Chief Inspector Colin Greenwood of the West Yorkshire Constabulary noted , At first glance , it may seem odd or even perverse to suggest that statutory controls on the private ownership of firearms are irrelevant to the problem of armed crime ; yet that is precisely what the evidence shows.
Armed crime and violent crime generally are the products of ethnic and social factors unrelated to the availability of a particular type of weapon.The number of firearms required to satisfy the crime market is small , and these are supplied no matter what controls are instituted.
Controls have had serious effects on legitimate users of firearms , but there is no case , either in the history of this country [ England ] or in the experience of other countries in which controls can be shown to have restricted the flow of weapons to criminals , or in any way reduce crime..
In America , the bumper sticker that reads , When guns are outlawed , only outlaws will have guns! sums up Inspector Greenwood's expert evaluation.
