Three Pacific countries - Nauru, Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands - have banned civilian firearm ownership completely.
Note: the Marshall Islands grant a small number of exemptions 'on the basis of genuine need'. Thirty licences, for .22 calibre rifles and below only, are issued under exemption for the purpose of 'killing sharks and pigs'.
