THE FACTS:

CARRYING A GUN

  • Anyone convicted of carrying a gun will receive a minimum of 5 years in jail
  • People who carry guns for protection are more likely to get injured themselves
  • You don't have to be the person carrying the gun to be sent to jail for gun crime offences
  • If you carry a gun you're likely to either be arrested and end up spending years locked up in prison or a youth offender's institution, or shot and killed yourself
  • People who carry guns put the rest of their family and friends lives' at risk.

JOINT ENTERPRISE

If your presence, knowledge or actions lead to a serious crime such as murder, you too could be charged with murder. This is referred to in law as 'joint enterprise'. This means that it's not just the person who uses the gun that could be charged with murder. It could be anyone who was with them, or knew or did something which led to it happening. If you weren't charged with murder, you could be charged with other offences, such as aiding and abetting. Click here for more information about 'joint enterprise'.
