Suggested Dataset: Number and percentage of firearms used in commission of crimes by legal status and firearm type

Statistics Canada
This dataset would contain data collected from 1970 to present, pertaining to the legal status of firearms used in the commission of crimes in Canada. i.e. whether the firearm in possession was legal or illegally owned, and what type of firearm was it? The legal status should also include whether the firearm was domestic/imported, owned/stolen, legally purchased/smuggled. EG: Shotgun-Domestic-legally purchased- stolen - illegal possession.
