I should think the whole issue of whether or not a gun in the house makes a kid safer or not should be pretty easy to figure out, no?
Well, this is actually pretty settled in regards to the numbers/data end of things. The answer is that statistically, a gun in the house increases the risk to a child. If you include suicide by your child with that firearm, statistically, it’s way higher.
Specifically, I was talking about increase of injury from guns…
Here’s a couple examples: http://library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/TUTORIAL/GUNS/GUNSTAT.html
“People who report “firearm access” are at twice the risk of homicide and more than three times the risk of suicide compared to those who do not own or have access to firearms”
And, it should be noted I was clearly including suicide, which most pro-gun folks do not. But, firearm suicide is a MUCH more effective way of suicide, as pointed out in that article.
I mean, the flip side, think about it like this…I have a home with a child in it. I have no gun in it. I have a gun in it. I mean, just reading that, isn’t it common sense that the home with the gun in it has a higher likelihood of risk to harm to the child?
The argument that you’re at risk from a burglar, in contrast to this, is silly.
There’s thousands of gun suicides every year. And, the number of gun death from burglary is similar to that of accidental death. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2012/12/gun-violence-and-the-irrational-fear-of-home-invasion/266613/
So, yeah, it seems silly to me to not allow a physician to counsel their patient on this issue.
