Mauser on the Long-Gun Registry and Spousal Homicide

Gary A. Mauser (Simon Fraser University) has posted The Long-Gun Registry and Spousal Homicide on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This paper is a brief analysis of a special request to Statistics Canada, made in July 2011, concerning female victims of spousal homicides (1995 - 2009). This study updates results from an earlier study I did in 2010 (SSRN #1599705). No support was found for the claim that the long-gun registry has been effective. As far as it can be determined, the long-gun registry has not saved a single woman’s life.
