Irish National Police to be Disarmed Following Review

11 December 2021

Irish Times (Ireland)

The Garda is dramatically reducing the number of members carrying guns as it moves towards a model of having specialist units act as the force's primary firearms response.

This was close to the proportion of members who were armed at the height of the Troubles in the 1980s. The 2019... (GunPolicy.org)

As the tally of gun-related deaths continue to grow daily, here's a look at how gun culture in... (GunPolicy.org)
