    People With Guns In Home At Greater Risk!!

    Those persons with guns in the home were at greater risk than those without guns in the home of dying from a homicide in the home (adjusted odds ratio = 1.9, 95% confidence interval: 1.1, 3.4). They were also at greater risk of dying from a firearm homicide, but risk varied by age and whether the person was living with others at the time of death. The risk of dying from a suicide in the home was greater for males in homes with guns than for males without guns in the home (adjusted odds ratio = 10.4, 95% confidence interval: 5.8, 18.9). Persons with guns in the home were also more likely to have died from suicide committed with a firearm than from one committed by using a different method (adjusted odds ratio = 31.1, 95% confidence interval: 19.5, 49.6). Results show that regardless of storage practice, type of gun, or number of firearms in the home, having a gun in the home was associated with an increased risk of firearm homicide and firearm suicide in the home.

    • Based on the statistics I recommend you stay away from hospitals and doctors. They'll do you in faster than the quickest gunslinger. My UPS driver's wife went in with minor ailment , caught infection in hospital, never came out alive. Now some of the dudes that take our money at gunpoint to pay exorbitant pension promises for their army of supporters sure don't want us to have any guns at all. Too bad the geniuses don't learn from history, instead they imitate the people known for evil doing. Must be the results of poor education with all the overworked underpaid teachers.LOL

    • #$%$ you liberal ..If you got a gun you must understand how to use it and keep it safe. If you have matches and don't use them safely they too will kill you..But gun in a home are absolutely OK...
