My recent posts about guns have generated a lot of interest and discussion in both my blogs — from readers in Canada, the United States and Britain.

I wonder if there are any accurate studies or reports about the numbers of guns obtained illegally by otherwise law-abiding citizens in those countries. I’m not talking about criminals; I’m talking about good, honest people who just couldn’t be bothered with all the red tape involved in acquiring and keeping a gun, so they buy them on the black market.

I’m researching the subject to see if the laws in Canada and Britain — and the U.S. — are driving people to the black market.

If any of my readers can point me to good articles, I will appreciate it . . .

Cheers
