Pediatric practice based evaluation of the Steps to Prevent Firearm Injury program. (1/300)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of gun ownership and methods of gun storage in homes of pediatric patients before and after an educational intervention. DESIGN: Before and after trial. SETTING: Hospital based, inner city, pediatric primary care practice. PARTICIPANTS: Consecutive sample of parents of patients with appointments August to November 1994. INTERVENTION: Before the intervention, participants completed an anonymous questionnaire regarding ownership and storage of guns in their home. The intervention followed the Steps to Prevent Firearm Injury program of the American Academy of Pediatrics. It began after the parent completed the questionnaire and was reinforced at subsequent visits until July 1995. Families completing a baseline questionnaire and returning to the office July to October 1995 were resurveyed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Reported change in gun ownership and methods of storage. RESULTS: A gun(s) in the home was reported by 8.7% of respondents. Matched baseline and follow up questionnaires were available for 23.6% of families. In these, gun ownership reportedly decreased after intervention from 9.4% to 7.0%, handgun ownership fell from 5.4% to 3.0%, and long gun ownership fell from 6.1% to 5.5%. Storing guns outside of a locked container did not change from the baseline prevalence of 2.7%, but keeping any gun loaded fell from 1.6% to 0.5%. All p values were >0.05. CONCLUSION: This study was unable to demonstrate a statistically significant decline in gun ownership or improvement in gun storage after a practice based intervention designed to encourage these behaviors.  (+info)

Comparing pediatric intentional injury surveillance data with data from publicly available sources: consequences for a public health response to violence. (2/300)

OBJECTIVE: A hospital based intentional injury surveillance system for youth (aged 3-18) was compared with other publicly available sources of information on youth violence. The comparison addressed whether locally conducted surveillance provides data that are sufficiently more complete, detailed, and timely that clinicians and public health practitioners interested in youth violence prevention would find surveillance worth conducting. SETTING: The Boston Emergency Department Surveillance (BEDS) project was conducted at Boston Medical Center and the Children's Hospital, Boston. METHOD: MEDLINE and other databases were searched for data sources that report separate data for youth and data on intentional injury. Sources that met these criteria (one national and three local) were then compared with BEDS data. Comparisons were made in the following categories: age, gender, victim-offender relationship, injury circumstance, geographic location, weapon rates, and violent injury rates. RESULTS: Of 14 sources dealing with violence, only four met inclusion criteria. Each source provided useful breakdowns for age and gender; however, only the BEDS data were able to demonstrate that 32.6% of intentional injuries occurred among youth aged 12 and under. Comparison data sources provided less detail regarding the victim-offender relationship, injury circumstance, and weapon use. Comparison of violent injury rates showed the difficulties for practitioners estimating intentional injury from sources based on arrest data, crime victim data, or weapon related injury. CONCLUSIONS: Comparison suggests that surveillance is more complete, detailed, and timely than publicly available sources of data. Clinicians and public health practitioners should consider developing similar systems.  (+info)

Handguns as a pediatric problem. 1986. (3/300)

Handgun injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in American society, particularly for young people. Large numbers of children are affected by handgun violence through the loss of fathers, brothers, and other relatives. Young children are injured and sometimes killed in handgun accidents. Some children and many adolescents are murdered with handguns. Because of their great lethality and very limited ability to provide personal protection, the great burden of handgun injury can best be reduced by making handguns less available. Handgun control cannot reduce rates of crime or interpersonal assault, but it can be expected to reduce the frequency and severity of injury which grows out of these situations, to levels closer to the much lower ones found in other countries. Pediatricians can contribute to this effort, as they have to the efforts to reduce the morbidity and mortality from poisonings and motor vehicle passenger injury.  (+info)

Firearm-associated deaths and hospitalizations--California, 1995-1996. (4/300)

During 1995-1996, 27% of recorded injury-related deaths in California involved firearms (California Department of Health Services [CDHS], unpublished data, 1995-1996). In 1996, CDHS began passive surveillance of "severe" firearm-related injuries (i.e., resulting in death or hospitalization) with resources provided by the California Wellness Foundation. To characterize firearm-related injuries in California, CDHS analyzed death records and hospital discharge records for 1995 and 1996 (the most recent years for which population data are available to calculate rates). This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that most of the 21,985 firearm-related injuries and deaths resulted from assault.  (+info)

Mortality among recent purchasers of handguns. (5/300)

BACKGROUND: There continues to be considerable controversy over whether ownership of a handgun increases or decreases the risk of violent death. METHODS: We conducted a population-based cohort study to compare mortality among 238,292 persons who purchased a handgun in California in 1991 with that in the general adult population of the state. The observation period began with the date of handgun purchase (15 days after the purchase application) and ended on December 31, 1996. The standardized mortality ratio (the ratio of the number of deaths among handgun purchasers to the number expected on the basis of age- and sex-specific rates among adults in California) was the principal outcome measure. RESULTS: In the first year after the purchase of a handgun, suicide was the leading cause of death among handgun purchasers, accounting for 24.5 percent of all deaths and 51.9 percent of deaths among women 21 to 44 years old. The increased risk of suicide by any method among handgun purchasers (standardized mortality ratio, 4.31) was attributable entirely to an excess risk of suicide with a firearm (standardized mortality ratio, 7.12). In the first week after the purchase of a handgun, the rate of suicide by means of firearms among purchasers (644 per 100,000 person-years) was 57 times as high as the adjusted rate in the general population. Mortality from all causes during the first year after the purchase of a handgun was greater than expected for women (standardized mortality ratio, 1.09), and the entire increase was attributable to the excess number of suicides by means of a firearm. As compared with the general population, handgun purchasers remained at increased risk for suicide by firearm over the study period of up to six years, and the excess risk among women in this cohort (standardized mortality ratio, 15.50) remained greater than that among men (standardized mortality ratio, 3.23). The risk of death by homicide with a firearm was elevated among women (standardized mortality ratio at one year, 2.20; at six years, 2.01) but low among men (standardized mortality ratio at one year, 0.84; at six years, 0.79). CONCLUSIONS: The purchase of a handgun is associated with a substantial increase in the risk of suicide by firearm and by any method; the increase in the risk of suicide by firearm is apparent within a week after the purchase of a handgun. The magnitude of the increase and the relation between handgun purchase and the risk of death by homicide differ between men and women.  (+info)

Homicide mortality in the United States, 1935-1994: age, period, and cohort effects. (6/300)

The authors analyzed homicide mortality data for the United States from 1935 to 1994, to delineate temporal trends and birth cohort patterns. This study included 850,822 homicide-attributed deaths documented by the National Center for Health Statistics, and incorporated graphical presentation, median polish, and Poisson regression modeling in an age-period-cohort analysis. Death rates from homicide in the United States doubled in the past four decades, with most of the increase having occurred during the 1960s and early 1970s. Poisson regression models confirmed that the rise of homicide mortality in both men and women was largely attributable to a significant period effect between 1960 and 1974. No discernible cohort patterns were found among women. However, homicide rates for recent male birth cohorts appeared to peak at younger ages and at higher levels. A significant increase in homicide mortality risk beginning with males born around 1965 was found by examining the residuals of median polish, and the second-order changes in the regression coefficients from the age-period-cohort model. The hike of homicide mortality during 1985 and 1994 was explained by this cohort effect. Increased prevalence of substance abuse and availability of firearms are two likely factors underlying this disturbing cohort pattern.  (+info)

Effects of Maryland's law banning Saturday night special handguns on crime guns. (7/300)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of a 1988 Maryland law that banned "Saturday night special" handguns on the types of guns used in crime. To determine if controls on the lawful market for handguns affect the illegal market as well. SETTING: Baltimore, Maryland, and 15 other US cities participating in a crime gun tracing project. METHODS: Cross sectional comparison of the proportion of crime guns that are banned by the Maryland law, comparing Baltimore, MD with 15 other cities outside of Maryland. Multivariate linear regression analysis to determine if observed differences between Baltimore and 15 other cities are explained by demographic or regional differences among the cities rather than Maryland's law. RESULTS: Among crime guns, a gun banned by Maryland's law is more than twice as likely (relative risk (RR) 2.3, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.0 to 2.5) to be the subject of a crime gun trace request in 15 other cities combined, than in Baltimore. Among homicide guns, a crime especially relevant for public safety, a comparable difference (RR 2.1, 95% CI 1.1 to 4.2) was observed. The proportion of Baltimore's crime guns that are banned is 12 percentage points lower than would be expected based on its demographic and regional characteristics alone. Among crime guns purchased after 1990, a much smaller proportion in Baltimore are banned models than in 15 other cities. CONCLUSIONS: Maryland's law has reduced the use of banned Saturday night specials by criminals in Baltimore. Contrary to the claims of some opponents of gun control laws, regulation of the lawful market for firearms can also affect criminals.  (+info)

Young guns: an empirical study of persons who use a firearm in a suicide or a homicide. (8/300)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this investigation was to identify population groups at highest risk of using a firearm in a fatal incident. SETTING: Los Angeles County (California, USA). METHODS: Data were gathered from vital statistics reports and law enforcement records on the characteristics of suicide victims (n = 4799) and homicide suspects (n = 5369) from 1990 through 1994. Logistic regression was used to identify characteristics of the actor/perpetrator that were associated with firearm use. RESULTS: Persons less than 21 years old and males were more likely to use a firearm to kill themselves or someone else. Even when their other demographic attributes and characteristics of the incident itself were taken into consideration, persons under the age of 18 were substantially more likely than those 21 or more years old to use a firearm in the commission of a homicide (adjusted odds ratio = 2.59). Asians were less likely than white people to use a firearm in the commission of a suicide, whereas black people, Hispanics, and Asians were more likely than whites to use a firearm in the commission of a homicide. CONCLUSIONS: The US enacts and enforces some policies differentially by age. These data support the idea that such an approach may be warranted when addressing fatalities associated with the use of a firearm. Of particular interest, given minimum age requirements for firearm purchases, is the source of the weapons themselves.  (+info)

A key component of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) enforcement mission is the tracing of firearms on behalf of thousands of federal, state, local and foreign law enforcement agencies. Firearms trace data is critically important information developed by ATF. ATF has prepared the following state-by-state reports utilizing trace data which is intended to provide the public with insight into firearms recoveries.. Firearms tracing is designed to provide investigative leads to law enforcement to linking a suspect to a firearm in a criminal investigation, to identify illegal firearms traffickers, and to identify trends and patterns in the flow of illegal firearms. Firearms tracing is only conducted at the request of a law enforcement agency engaged in a bona fide criminal investigation where a firearm has been used or is suspected to have been used in a crime. Although not all firearms used in crimes that are recovered by law enforcement are traced, ATF encourages every ...
An early study of the uneven distribution of sales of firearms later used in crime finds that in 1998 more than 57 percent of all recovered firearms traced by ATF were first sold by just over 1 percent of federal firearms licensees (ATF 2000a). Firearm sales were also concentrated among relatively few licensees, however, leaving open the possibility that sales of large numbers of crime-involved firearms reflected nothing more than sales volume (FBI 2000). This possibility was tested in a study of data for each handgun sold by the 421 licensees in California with sales of one hundred or more handguns annually between 1996 and 2000 (Wintemute, Cook, and Wright 2005). The study finds that it was not a likely explanation for the skewed distribution of sales of crime-involved firearms; some retailers sold crime-involved firearms not just frequently, but disproportionately-more frequently than [End Page 59] expected based on sales volume alone. The strongest predictor of disproportionate sales of ...
For Release: Wednesday, June 2, 2010. Louisiana, Mississippi, Alaska, Alabama, and Nevada Have Highest Gun Death Rates. Washington, DC-States with higher gun ownership rates and weak gun laws have the highest rates of overall gun death according to a new analysis by the Violence Policy Center (VPC) of just-released 2007 national data (the most recent available) from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Preventions National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.. The analysis reveals that the five states with the highest per capita gun death rates were Louisiana, Mississippi, Alaska, Alabama, and Nevada. Each of these states had a per capita gun death rate far exceeding the national per capita gun death rate of 10.34 per 100,000 for 2007. Each of the top-ranking states has lax gun laws and higher gun ownership rates. By contrast, states with strong gun laws and low rates of gun ownership had far lower rates of firearm-related death. Ranking last in the nation for gun death was Hawaii, ...
Different national polls tend to show slightly different rates of gun ownership. The latest household gun ownership rate in the General Social Survey, in 2014, was 32 percent. The October 2015 Gallup survey showed a higher rate of 43 percent, including guns kept on property outside of the home.. But the downward trend in gun ownership remains consistent across the national polls. According to Gallup, gun ownership has fallen by about 10 percentage points since its peak in 1993. The General Social Survey shows a 20-point drop since the mid-1970s.. But gun purchases, as measured by FBI firearm background checks, are at historic highs. And data from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms shows that gun manufacturers are churning out record numbers of guns. Many gun rights advocates argue that these figures mean that the overall number of gun owners is growing: If more guns are being sold, more people must be owning guns.. But the declining rates of gun ownership across three major national ...
We assessed gun ownership rates in 2013 across the USA and the association between exposure to a social gun culture and gun ownership. We used data from a nationally representative sample of 4000 US adults, from 50 states and District of Columbia, aged ,18 years to assess gun ownership and social gun culture performed in October 2013. State-level firearm policy information was obtained from the Brady Law Center and Injury Prevention and Control Center. One-third of Americans reported owning a gun, ranging from 5.2% in Delaware to 61.7% in Alaska. Gun ownership was 2.25-times greater among those reporting social gun culture (PR=2.25, 95% CI 2.02 to 2.52) than those who did not. In conclusion, we found strong association between social gun culture and gun ownership. Gun cultures may need to be considered for public health strategies that aim to change gun ownership in the USA. ...
The state with the highest per capita gun death rate in 2017 was Alaska, followed by Montana, Alabama, Louisiana, and Missouri. Each of these states has extremely lax gun violence prevention laws as well as a higher rate of gun ownership. The state with the lowest gun death rate in the nation was Hawaii, followed by Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Each of these states has strong gun violence prevention laws and a lower rate of gun ownership.. The total number of Americans killed by gunfire increased to 39,773 in 2017 from 38,658 in 2016. The nationwide gun death rate in 2017 increased to 12.21 per 100,000 from 2016s gun death rate of 11.95 per 100,000.. Year after year the numbers reflect the same undeniable fact. States with fewer guns and strong gun laws have far lower rates of gun death, states VPC Legislative Director Kristen Rand, Gun violence is a growing public health crisis that demands immediate attention from policymakers on Capitol Hill and in statehouses ...
The first hypothesis of this study was supported. The results showed that children who received Eddie Eagle program training and BST scored significantly better than did those in the control group in the self-report measure. The second hypothesis of the study was also supported. Children trained with the Eddie Eagle program verbalized the safety skills message but did not demonstrate the firearm injury prevention skills when in the presence of a firearm, whereas children trained with BST verbalized the safety skills message and performed the desired safety skills in the presence of a firearm. The third hypothesis was also supported. Children trained with the BST procedure, but not those trained with the Eddie Eagle program, demonstrated the skills in naturalistic assessments, which showed that the skills learned in the after-school program could be generalized to real-world settings. Our final hypothesis, ie, that in situ training would be effective for teaching children the desired safety ...
Physicians have unique opportunities to help prevent firearm violence. Concern has developed that federal and state laws or regulations prohibit physicians from asking or counseling patients about firearms and disclosing patient information about firearms to others, even when threats to health and safety may be involved. This is not the case. In this article, the authors explain the statutes in question, emphasizing that physicians may ask about firearms (with rare exceptions), may counsel about firearms as they do about other health matters, and may disclose information to third parties when necessary. The authors then review circumstances under which questions about firearms might be most appropriate if they are not asked routinely. Such circumstances include instances when the patient provides information or exhibits behavior suggesting an acutely increased risk for violence, whether to himself or others, or when the patient possesses other individual-level risk factors for violence, such as ...

Determining the relationship between gun ownership levels and firearm homicide rates is critical to inform public health policy. Previous research has shown that state-level gun ownership, as measured by a widely used proxy, is positively associated with firearm homicide rates. A newly developed proxy measure that incorporates the hunting license rate in addition to the proportion of firearm suicides correlates more highly with state-level gun ownership. To corroborate previous research, we used this new proxy to estimate the association of state-level gun ownership with total, firearm, and non-firearm homicides. Using state-specific data for the years 1981-2010, we modelled these rates as a function of gun ownership level, controlling for potential confounding factors. We used a negative binomial regression model and accounted for clustering of observations among states. We found that state-level gun ownership as measured by the new proxy, is significantly associated with firearm and total ...
A method for facilitating firearms training is provided. The method comprises using a client computer system to access via the Internet a retrieval system on a host computer system. The retrieval system is adapted to retrieve a firearms training simulation stored in a computer database upon receiving a signal. The firearms training simulation is adapted to train a trainee in using a firearm. The method further comprises inputting the signal in a manner such that the retrieval system retrieves the firearms training simulation from the database and transfers it to the client computer system in a manner sufficient for the firearms trainee to train with the firearm.
The Canadian Firearms Registry is the gun registry managed by the Canadian Firearms Program of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) as part of the RCMPs responsibilities under the Firearms Act, 1995. It requires the registration of all restricted and prohibited firearms in Canada. The registry was introduced by the Liberal government of Prime Minister Jean Chrétien in 1993 and implemented by successive Justice Ministers Allan Rock and Anne McLellan. The net annual operating cost of the program was originally estimated to be $2 million. Originally the program required the registration of all non-restricted firearms but this requirement was dropped on April 6, 2012 by the coming into force of Bill C-19. Bill C-19 also mandated the destruction of the non-restricted records of the registry as soon as feasible. The Province of Quebec immediately filed a request for an injunction to prevent the destruction of the data. A temporary injunction was granted by the Superior Court of Quebec on April ...
The article confuses criminal use of firearms and accidental discharges. These issues warrant different treatment, much as foot pain from diabetic neuropathy and foot pain from arterial ischemia should not be lumped together. The importance of the gun violence issue is not prioritized against any other issues. Should we ban other dangers, such as swimming, motorcycles, and knives? The survey seeks testimonial support of the medical literature on guns (Table 3). Why? Could the respondents name any authors or titles? Much of this literature has been refuted [2]. The design of survey questions affects the results. Cassel and colleagues Table 5 lists many anti-gun ownership choices but no alternate strategies. The benefit of firearm ownership was not surveyed. The questionnaire should have been provided as an appendix to the article. If gun violence is defined as a medical issue, then perhaps it is reasonable to redefine medical malpractice as a criminal negligence issue with prison terms. That ...
The Small Arms Survey estimates that there are 270 million privately owned firearms in the United States, which equals approximately .9 firearms for every American. To my mind, thats a good start.. That number represents a large percentage of the approximately 650 million firearms in private hands across the globe. This is why Americans enjoy much more freedom, peace, and prosperity than so many of our brothers in other lands.. Americans lead in private firearms ownership is increasing; Americans purchase more than half of the eight million new small arms which are manufactured every year. Our close competitors include Finland (.56 firearms per person) and Switzerland (.46 firearms per person)..

Emergency physicians can have a critical role in preventing firearm injury. What can be done to improve the identification and counseling of high-risk patients?
Findings: Empirical research on firearms and violence has resulted in important findings that can inform policy decisions. In particular, a wealth of descriptive information exists about the prevalence of firearm-related injuries and deaths, about firearms markets, and about the relationships between rates of gun ownership and violence. Research has found, for example, that higher rates of household firearms ownership are associated with higher rates of gun suicide, that illegal diversions from legitimate commerce are important sources of crime guns and guns used in suicide, that firearms are used defensively many times per day, and that some types of targeted police interventions may effectively lower gun crime and violence. This information is a vital starting point for any constructive dialogue about how to address the problem of firearms and violence. While much has been learned, much remains to be done, and this report necessarily focuses on the important unknowns in this field of study. ...

As expected, on average, younger individuals, have significantly lower suicide mortality than their older peers. For all methods, except firearms, younger age is associated with significantly lower suicide mortality independent of gender. Although the protective effect of younger age is less pronounced for more lethal methods, it remains significant even among those who used the second most lethal suicide method-suffocation. However, the considerable protective effect of youth vanishes among firearm users; for both males and females, suicide mortality is remarkably uniform across all age categories of firearm users.. For all methods except firearms, younger age protects against mortality regardless of suicide method and gender-our proxies for intention die. It seems that robust health and other characteristics of younger individuals lower suicide mortality independent of their intention to die. However, whatever protection younger age confers, firearms negate. It is unlikely that this lack of an ...

A safety device (1) for fire-arms (11), includes actuator elements (10; 10′; 19, 20, 21, 21′, 22), suitable to engage with mechanical parts of the fire-arm (11) so as to prevent and/or permit its operation; and a control unit (2), operatively connected with the actuator elements (10; 10′; 19, 20, 21, 21′, 22), the control unit (2) including transceiving elements (3), cooperating with certification outer members brought by an authorized user (U) for exchanging signals with the same for codified remote control of the actuator elements (10; 10′; 19, 20, 21, 21′, 22). A remote control system for one or more firearms provided with the safety device is also disclosed.
This is a data set of state specific firearm legislation in 2009. Firearms are ubiquitous in the US, and the high rates of firearm ownership have been directly associated with increased risk of firearm-related mortality. Firearm violence prevention has had limited success in the form of a federal law, Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, (Pub.L.103-159, 107 Stat. 1536, enacted November 30, 1993, effective on February 28, 1994), commonly called the Brady Law. The Brady Law requires background checks to be conducted on individuals before a firearm may be purchased from a federally licensed dealer, manufacturer or importer-unless an exception applies. However, the loopholes to this statute allow unfettered sales from unlicensed dealers. To offset the limitations of the Brady Law, several states have instituted separate laws intended to fill these gaps. States have implemented firearm laws in an effort to reduce firearm access to children and to regulate firearm storage practices. Conversely, ...
Firearms; removal from persons posing substantial risk; penalties. Creates a procedure by which any attorney for the Commonwealth or any law-enforcement officer may apply to a general district court, circuit court, or juvenile and domestic relations district court judge or magistrate for an emergency substantial risk order to prohibit a person who poses a substantial risk of injury to himself or others from purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm. If an emergency substantial risk order is issued, a judge or magistrate may issue a search warrant to remove firearms from such person. An emergency substantial risk order shall expire on the fourteenth day following issuance of the order. The bill requires a court hearing in the circuit court for the jurisdiction where the order was issued within 14 days from issuance of an emergency substantial risk order to determine whether a substantial risk order should be issued. Seized firearms shall be retained by a law-enforcement agency for the duration of

Because firearm-related injury to children is associated with death and severe morbidity and is a significant public health problem, child health care professionals can and should provide effective leadership in efforts to stem this epidemic. The AAP recognizes the importance of a variety of countermeasures (educational, environmental, engineering, enactment, enforcement, economic incentives, and evaluation) to begin to curb dramatically the number of firearm-related injuries to children. The AAP makes the following recommendations, which reaffirm and expand on the 1992 policy statement71:. 1. The AAP affirms that the most effective measure to prevent firearm-related injuries to children and adolescents is the absence of guns from homes and communities.. a) Firearm regulation, to include bans of handguns and assault weapons, is the most effective way to reduce firearm-related injuries.. b) Pediatricians and other child health care professionals are urged to inform parents about the dangers of ...

Firearm-related injuries are a major cause of premature deaths in the United States (1). Although state-based vital records systems monitor fatal injuries, few surveillance systems exist to monitor nonfatal firearm-related injuries (2). Wisconsin is one of seven states funded by CDC cooperative agreements to establish firearm-related injury surveillance systems. Wisconsins system, which links hospital discharge records and vital records, uses external cause of injury codes (E-codes) for case identification. This report describes the surveillance system and findings for 1994. All Wisconsin hospitals are required to report E-codes for hospitalized patients to the states hospital discharge database. E-codes, which are part of the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) injury classification scheme, were used to classify the intent of the perpetrator and the type of firearm discharged. E-codes used to classify intent include E922.0-9 ...

In 2014, non-fatal firearm injuries accounted for 1,152 hospital discharges among California children and young adults ages 0-24 (8.8 per 100,000), down from more than 5,000 (43 per 100,000) in 1991. In 2014, boys and young men were discharged for firearm injuries at more than ten times the rate (15.8 per 100,000) of girls and young women (1.4 per 100,000), and the rate of discharge among African American/black youth (53.6 per 100,000) was more than six times higher than for any other group with data. Across demographic groups, assault is the most common cause of non-fatal firearm injury in California ...
Researchers analyzed national data on firearm-related fatalities and nonfatal firearm injuries in patients aged 0 to 17 years between 2002 and 2014. Data on incident circumstances were obtained from the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS), a state based surveillance system active in 17 states. Results showed that males accounted for 82% of firearm deaths and 84% of nonfatal injuries regardless of intent, with death rates among males aged 13 to 17 being 6 times higher than those among females. During this time period, 53% of deaths were homicides while 38% were suicides and 6% were unintentional deaths. From 2002 to 2007, homicide rates increased significantly (1.2 to 1.4 per 100,000, P,.05) while rates declined significantly from 2007 to 2014 (1.4 to 0.9, P,.05). Conversely, suicide rates from 2002-2007 decreased significantly (1.3 to 1.0, P,.05) and increased significantly from 2007-2014 (1.0 to 1.6, P,.05). White children had the highest overall risk of fatal firearm injuries, ...
These data were collected using the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), the primary data system of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). CPSC began operating NEISS in 1972 to monitor product-related injuries treated in United States hospital emergency departments (EDs). In June 1992, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, established an interagency agreement with CPSC to begin collecting data on nonfatal firearm-related injuries to monitor the incidence and characteristics of persons with nonfatal firearm-related injuries treated in United States hospital EDs over time. This dataset represents all nonfatal firearm-related injuries (i.e., injuries associated with powder-charged guns) and all nonfatal BB and pellet gun-related injuries reported through NEISS from 1993 through 2000. The cases consist of initial ED visits for treatment of the injuries. Cases were reported even if ...

Accurately determining the costs of treating firearm injuries and who pays them has proved elusive, but a recently published study sheds some light on the issue. Stanford University School of Medicine researchers examined initial hospitalization charges for firearm injuries between 2006 and 2014 and reported that more than $734 million was spent annually, or more than $6.6 billion over the nine-year period. The researchers adjusted costs to 2014 dollars using Consumer Price Index rates. The researchers say those figures are a small fraction of the . . .
singlepic id=311 w=216 h=290 float=left]Six California Condors, among the most endangered birds in the world, have recently been recovered suffering from lead poisoning. Three of these subsequently died from lead poisoning from ammunition, while three others were treated for lead poisoning, according to The Peregrine Funds Condor Recovery Program in Arizona. This brings the total number of California condors killed by lead in the last 11 years to 19.. This tragic news comes as little surprise for those of us engaged in the lead ammunition issue. We expect more condor, eagle, and other bird deaths as long as lead remains an ingredient in bullets and shot used for hunting, said George Fenwick, President of American Bird Conservancy. Ammunition manufacturers have introduced superior non-toxic ammunition both for shotguns and for hunting rifles, and hunters report the newer non-toxic bullets outperform traditional ammunition. The cost of non-toxic ammunition is now the same as for premium lead ...

HONOLULU - President Barack Obama will meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss executive actions he could take to make it harder for a dangerous few to get their hands on guns.. Obama said on his weekly radio address that he gets so many letters from parents, teachers and children about the epidemic of gun violence that he cant sit around and do nothing.. The gun lobby is loud and well organized in its defence of effortlessly available guns for anyone, Obama said. The rest of us are going to have to be just as passionate and well organized in our defence of our kids.. Obama recently directed staff at the White House to look into potential executive actions, such as expanding background checks.. Currently, federally licensed firearms dealers are required to seek background checks on potential firearm purchasers. But advocacy groups say some of the people who sell firearms at gun shows are not federally licensed, increasing the chance of sales to customers prohibited ...

It also directs the Attorney General to consult with Federal, State, local, and tribal law enforcement officers to assess the effectiveness of existing crisis hotlines and make recommendations to Congress regarding any needed changes; to conduct research into the efficacy of an annual mental health check for law enforcement officers; and to coordinate with other federal law enforcement agencies to examine the mental health and wellness needs of Federal law enforcement officers while including a blanket stipulation to protect the privacy of participating law enforcement officers. Efforts are underway at the state level as well.

Second Amendment Rights and Black Sheep. October 18, 2007 After carefully reviewing the historical documents pertaining to the drafting and ratification of the Bill of Rights, I am unable to find a single instance of intent that the Second Amendment was the bastard child of the litter.. And yet liberals (including the Mainstream Media), who treat nine of the original Amendments with the same reverence they bestow on Mao s Little Red Book, consistently treat the Second Amendment as the flawed bastard of the Bill. If any of our Constitutional Rights were trampled to the same extent that the exercise of Second Amendment Rights are daily disparaged and denied...the American Civil Liberties Union would suffer a collective panty-twist.

GARY MAUSER, representing the National Firearms Association of Canada, said he had a 20-year career in academic research on firearms and crime. In his professional opinion, there was no empirical evidence to support claims that civilian access to small arms and light weapons engendered criminal or terrorist violence. A wide variety of other factors had been found important, however: lack of economic freedom; organized crime; non-democratic government; governmental corruption; drug trafficking; and a history of violent ethnic conflict. Indeed, surveys showed that firearm ownership was highly concentrated among the largest and wealthiest societies, which were also the most politically stable countries in the world and typically had low levels of violence. And even if gun bans worked, many alternative weapons were available to would-be murderers - eight decades of police-state enforcement of handgun prohibition would have kept Russian gun ownership low, yet its murder rates had long been four times ...
The evidence is in: houses with guns in them are houses in which the chances of death by accident or suicide skyrocket and in which even the chances of getting shot fatally by an intruder rises. Domestic violence in which guns are involved are lethal, while without them they are far less likely to be. Nobody needs an assault rifle or multiple ammunition clips to hunt, banning the private ownership of such weapons harms a marginal minority of gun nuts who shouldnt have guns anyway. Anybody who enjoys shooting or collecting guns for sport or hobby should balance their pleasure in that activity with its objective public safety threat: shooting guns in authorized ranges which store the guns on premises, and collecting historical weapons that are rendered nonfunctional are reasonable compromises. Background checks for all gun purchases including online and gun-show purchases, making licensing contingent on taking a gun safety course, encouraging health officials to ask questions about gun ownership ...

Walvis Bay - The Namibian police in the Erongo Region have appealed to residents still in possession of illegal firearms and ammunition to surrender such weapons as soon as possible during the extended amnesty period to avoid being charged.. The amnesty period which was initially scheduled from August 16 until November 18 last year saw only one firearm being surrendered in the Erongo Region.. However, 30 rifles, 10 pistols, 10 barrels, 10 bombshells, two air-guns and 4,000 rounds of ammunition were surrender shortly after the amnesty period was extended to February 18 this year.. Briefing the media yesterday at Walvis Bay, Deputy Commissioner Tobias Gerber said there are more weapons in the region and thus urged all residents in the region to surrender such weapons while they still have time to do so in order to avoid prosecution.. We need more firearms. We know there are a lot more than what was already surrendered. By surrendering, we mean anything that has to do with firearms, even empty ...
Justice Breyer delivered the opinion of the Court. The federal witness tampering statute makes it a crime to kill another person, with intent to … prevent the communication by any person to a law enforcement officer … of the United States of information relating to the … possible commission of a Federal offense. 18 U. S. C. §1512(a)(1)(C). We focus on instances where a defendant killed a person with an intent to prevent that person from communicating with law enforcement officers in general but where the defendant did not have federal law enforcement officers (or any specific individuals) particularly in mind. The question before us concerns what, if anything, the Government must show beyond this broad in-definite intent in order to show that the defendant more particularly intended to prevent communication with federal officers as well. We hold that, in such circumstances, the Government must show that there was a reasonable likelihood that a relevant communication would have been ...

The law enforcement officer may use reasonable force if necessary to require such person to submit to the administration of the blood test. The blood test shall be performed in a reasonable manner. Notwithstanding s. 316.1932, the testing required by this paragraph need not be incidental to a lawful arrest of the person ...

Guns are an enduring symbol of imperialism, whether they are used to impose social order, create ceremonial spectacle, incite panic, or to inspire confidence. In Guns and Society, Saheed Aderinto considers the social, political, and economic history of these weapons in colonial Nigeria. As he transcends traditional notions of warfare and militarization, Aderinto reveals surprising insights into how colonialism changed access to firearms after the 19th century. In doing so, he explores the unusual ways in which guns were used in response to changes in the Nigerian cultural landscape. More Nigerians used firearms for pastime and professional hunting in the colonial period than at any other time. The boom and smoke of gunfire even became necessary elements in ceremonies and political events. Aderinto argues that firearms in the Nigerian context are not simply commodities but are also objects of material culture. Considering guns in this larger context provides a clearer understanding of the ways in ...

Statement from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI):. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families and loved ones of all those killed and injured in the criminal attack in Las Vegas. The manufacture, distribution and sale of automatic firearms and their components has been stringently regulated by federal laws since 1934. We believe the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) should interpret and enforce existing laws and regulations. We call upon ATF to conduct a prompt review and evaluation of aftermarket trigger activation devices such as bump stocks to determine whether they are lawful to install and use on a firearm under the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA), or whether, if they have no function or purpose other than to convert a conventional firearm into an automatic firearm, they are regulated items under the NFA. We urge Congress to allow ATF to complete its review before ...
A The disposition of the instant case follows readily from the principles articulated in Mitchell and One Lot Emerald Cut Stones. Mulcahey first argues that, because of his earlier criminal acquittal, the doctrine of collateral estoppel operates to preclude the § 924(d) forfeiture action. But an acquittal on criminal charges does not prove that the defendant is innocent; it merely proves the existence of a reasonable doubt as to his guilt. We need not be concerned whether the jury decided to acquit Mulcahey because he was entrapped into making an illegal sale or whether the jurors were not convinced of Page 465 U. S. 362. his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt for other reasons. In either case, the jury verdict in the criminal action did not negate the possibility that a preponderance of the evidence could show that Mulcahey was engaged in an unlicensed firearms business. Mulcaheys acquittal on charges brought under § 922(a)(1) therefore does not estop the Government from proving in a civil ...
The left is obsessed over imposing gun control on the civilian population, as if firearms were the leading cause of deaths. But official U.S. statistics indicate that left-wingers are wrong. The leading cause of death in the United States is by far abortion, which is fully protected by leftists with various absurd laws. While the defense weapons function is to protect lives against armed criminals, the function of legal abortion is to kill innocent lives.. Legal abortion, protected by left-wingers, provokes over 600,000 murders a year. Firearms in the hands of criminals provoke about 12,000 murders a year, and they are not among the leading causes of deaths. But if American citizens were disarmed, as the left wants, the number of murders would increase dramatically, as Brazils poor example shows, where gun control policies historically dominate, and the predicted outcome is over 60,000 murders a year.. I am sure that if gun control is approved in America, armed violence will become one of the ...
