Small Arms Survey study on civilian possession informed by ISACS

“This study offers an overview of civilian possession laws in the selected countries using a series of tables to compare and summarize specific elements of national and sub-national controls. Although not agreed in any inter- national negotiating forum, the elements of civilian gun control used to structure the tables have figured in various international reports and documents, such as the United Nations International Study on Firearm Regulation (UNCJIN, 1999), the UN Development Programme’s How to Guide: Small Arms and Light Weapons Legislation (UNDP, 2008), and the draft International Small Arms Control Standard on national controls over the access of civilians to small arms and light weapons of the UN Coordinating Action on Small Arms (UNCASA, forthcoming).”
