Inspector Dave Harrison said “These days of action are effective and I hope show the public that we will do everything in our power to proactively protect our Huyton communities.
“Recently, we have experienced a number of shootings which have left the public feeling scared for their safety. This is completely inappropriate. Our communities deserve to feel protected and able to wander the streets knowing that there isn’t someone carrying a gun nearby.
“The people using guns are really stupid – these are lethal weapons that can land you in prison for a long long time. Storing them is also so dangerous; it was only this week that we recovered a loaded gun. Summary ends.
