   In fact, during a recent conference on guns and gangs, Lynn Barr-Telford, director general of health, justice and special surveys at Statistics Canada, said the origin of firearms involved in Canadian gun crime is largely unknown.
   "At the height of the long-gun registry, Stats Canada documented that nine per cent of the firearms involved in homicides were registered," said Gary Mauser, a professor emeritus at Simon Fraser University who runs a blog called Justice for Gun Owners.
  "Other than police claims based on a secret, bloated definition, there's no support for the change in the source of crime guns. According to StatsCan, lawful owners cannot be a major source of crime guns. According to StatsCan, PAL holders are much less apt to commit murder than other Canadians."
