  • (Killias 1993) Martin Killias 1993, School of Forensic Sciences and Criminology, University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland.[2] It reports firearm ownership rates in 18 countries. In the survey, "firearms" include handguns, rifles, and shotgun, but exclude air rifles.

List of countries

Note that in general, the Killias survey reports much lower numbers than Ajdacic-Gross, and so readers should consult the Killias article before accepting Ajdacic-Gross as definitive.
