Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I will be sharing my time with Mr. Armstrong today.
Thank you to all of our witnesses for coming today.
This question will be for Mr. Mauser.
We did hear the last testimony here, and I'm just wondering if you'd be able to comment from your perspective as a criminologist, because I definitely heard some differences of opinion there in regard to the drop in homicides by long guns being attributed to Bill C-68.
Can you comment from your findings as to whether we're talking coincidence here or if there's some cause and effect that can be attributed to the registry for the drop in homicides rates by long guns?
