About 300 million estimated civilian owned guns
Canada's Gun Control:
This month, the government is set to delete the gun registry data on all rifles and shotguns outside of the province of Quebec. The loss of this data, that all Canadians paid to collect, means that no record will exist on nearly six million guns. It means that should those guns be used in crime, police will be unable to link them to their owners and hold them accountable and their investigations involving guns will be more difficult and expensive.
