It's higher then it was, but at a level that is far far lower than in the United States.

I don't think anyone envisaged that banning handguns would make them vanish from society. Life isn't that simple. It does eliminate one source of guns, and reduces the danger of one type of gun crime. and that's as much as it can do.

What is rubbish is the implication which that NRA article apparently tries to promote, that there is some connection between the ban on handguns and the increase in shootings.
