Yet, according to the BBC, firearms offences in Scotland are at their lowest level for 39 years.

Well, the BBC is clearly wrong, because if you look at the statistics, you will see in table 17a that the number of licencing offences has increased dramatically from 55 in 2016-17 to 396 in 2017-18.

So what they're saying is, they've had a slight drop in offences where airguns were used and a whacking great big increase in people having them without a certificate. This is what is usually defined as: "counterproductive".
