1 Men and guns

Having any gun in the home is a risk factor for suicide for everyone there – the gun owner, the gun owner’s spouse, and the gun owner’s children.

Suicide among males is four times higher than among females. Men are far more likely than women to use firearms in their suicide attempts, which is one reason men’s attempts are so likely to lead to death.

1 Women and guns

A woman’s chances of being killed by her assailant increase more than 7 times if he has access to her gun.

2 Children and guns

Having a gun in the home increases the risk that an unintentional shooting could occur.

Children shot unintentionally — usually by other children — are collateral casualties of the accessibility of guns in America.Even more shocking, studies show that 1 child or teen is injured almost every hour by firearms.

2 Burglary and Guns

Having a gun in your home can still be dangerous both to your family and those around you.

And studies have shown that having a gun in your house may actually increase the risk of burglary. One reason for this is that guns are attractive loot for burglars.

3 Safety and guns

65% of Americans think owning a gun makes them safer. But the evidence is overwhelming that a gun in the home is a risk factor for suicides, unintentional shootings and homicides.

A gun in the home is more likely to be used to threaten intimates at home than to protect against intruders.

3 Collection and Guns

Guns at home are always dangerous, even if it’s in a locked collection.

Remember Adam Lanza? He used the guns from his mother’s collection to kill 26 people in Sandy Hook Elementary, arguably the most tragic mass shooting in American history.

4 Alcohol and Guns

Weapons and alcohol don’t mix. Approximately one third of all firearms-related deaths reported in US involve alcohol.

And more than 30% of suicide and homicide victims have alcohol in their systems at the time of death.

4 Rage and Guns

Studies show that just handling a gun makes men’s testosterone levels rise and makes them more aggressive.

And history shows that the presence of a gun can make road rage, quarrels, disputes, depression, bullying, assaults and robberies all more deadly.

5 Neglect and Guns

A locked gun is safer than an unlocked gun.

But there are numerous cases where even a locked gun has lead to injuries or even fatalities, especially when kids and teenagers are present.

5 Neglect and Guns

More than 1.5 million kids in the U.S live in homes with unlocked guns.

Not coincidentally, children are more likely to be killed by a gun at home than anywhere else.

6 Mental Illness and Guns

Those with mental illness, such as depression, are at greater risk of suicide.

More than half of gun deaths each year in the U.S. are due to suicide.

6 Suicide and Guns

It’s not that gun owners are more suicidal.

It’s that they’re more likely to die in the event that they become suicidal, because they are using a gun.
