Small Arms and Domestic Violence: The Situation in Canada

The first ever report on national gun-seizure statistics shows that non-restricted firearms, mostly rifles and shotguns, made up 74 per cent of the 8,261 guns seized from owners who were either violent, had threatened violence, or were subject to a prohibition order.

Forty-three per cent of the guns seized were registered in the Firearms Registry.
