    people do own firearms in Japan.  Sometimes a lot of them.  We live out in the country and often see guys strolling down the roads up in the mountains, shotguns on their shoulders.  There's a fair bit of hunting going on (and we get deer, duck, bear, and wild boar stews out of it), as well as varmint blasting (wild boars again, as well as the occasional monkey).  

    Of course, the nice thing is that guns here are heavily regulated, and you can't just pop off to a shop and get armed to the teeth in thirty minutes or less.
