According to a study reported in the Journal of Trauma-Injury, Infection and Critical Care in August 1998, "Guns kept in homes are more likely to be involved in a fatal or nonfatal accidental shooting, criminal assault, or suicide attempt than to be used to injure or kill in self-defense."

Specifically, they found, "...For every one time a gun in the home was used in a self-defense..., there were four unintentional shootings, seven criminal assaults or homicides, and 11 attempted or completed suicides." Put another way, five percent of the time, a gun in the home was used for self-protection; 95 percent of the time it resulted in mayhem.
