Follow up to IR-01-18-12138.

I'm looking for the remaining data from the time period that request was filed, through to now.

The initial request supplies how many licensed firearm owners have been convicted of murder with a firearm, by year, for the last 20 years.

Would I be able to get a copy of those figures, as well as the figures for all of 2018 (as it is currently through to early December only) as well as and 2019 to date? These should be separated by year also.
