There is a growing concern about the extent of gun possession and use among criminals. Despite this concern, relatively little is known about gun ownership in the offender population. This article aims to help fill this gap by drawing on the results of interviews with arrestees conducted in 16 locations in England and Wales as part of the NEW-ADAM (New English and Welsh Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring) programme. In order to monitor gun crime and to take effective action, it is important to increase current knowledge about the possession and use of guns among offenders.
