Survey evidence suggests that the [Australian Firearms] buyback nearly halved the share of Australian households with one or more firearms.(2)
(2) - We have been unable to locate reliable evidence on the share of Australian households that owned a gun in 1996, immediately prior to the buyback. The best data appear to come from the International Crime Victim Surveys (ICVS), which indicate that 15% of Australian households owned a firearm in 1992, compared with just 8% in 2000.
