I disagree vehemently I AM Canadian and we gave dew off the problems we see in the news weekly in the USA . We do gave access to buy and use guns but controlled so the process of training and buying is drawn out over some months. Most rural Canadians own guns but not assault rifles or pistols . Semiautos are limited to 5 rounds. Pistols held by collectors or target shooters need a permit to convey(travel to and from the range) that gas to be done with it secured in a locked case breech removed ammunition in a separately locked case.shotguns have the tube factory plugged to hold 3 shells.. When we apply for a Possession and acquisition licence a criminal record check is done at the federal level and permits are not given to those with violent crimes convictions like domestic abuse or assault.im not saying that our system is perfect but overall it works as evidenced by low gun crime rates.To own an assault type rifle is not common but not impossible either since we do have a class if permit for those restricted guns too but the permitting process us much more stringent.i hope meaningful legislation is passed in your country and your innocents stop being killed in such large numbers. I no longer travel to the USA because of the risks to life for my family my sister was lucky enough to escape the Florida nightclub shooting having cancelled plans to be there that night.
