    I would like to include the following in my reply:

    I've heard these numbers several times, but would just like to verify that they are true, and would like a source to cite... does anyone have one?

    It's true. guns banned by the awb are used in ~2-3% of gun crimes. That didn't change during the ban. I'm not 100% sure where to find the exact statistics, but I'm sure someone else knows.

    Gunfacts.info is a good site for tracking down statistics.

    That stat is 100% accurate. 3% were autos and 4% revolvers.
