  1. Gun ownership and counseling of Alabama pediatricians.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To examine the personal behavior of primary care pediatricians in Alabama with respect to a gun control policy.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics supports removal of handguns from homes, safe gun storage in homes with guns, and counseling patients about gun safety practices.

    Design 

    Survey.

    Setting 

    Primary care pediatricians.

    Patients or Other Participants 

    Population-based sample.

    Interventions 

    None.

    Main Outcome Measures 

    The proportion of pediatricians who were gun and handgun owners was examined.

    In addition, the safety behaviors and counseling practices reported by pediatricians were examined.

    Results 

    The response rate for pediatricians was 67%. Fifty percent of pediatricians reported owning a gun.

    Thirty-four percent of pediatricians bad a handgun in their household.

    Eleven percent of pediatricians bad unsafe gun practices, where unsafe was defined as having a loaded gun in the home or car at least some of the time.

    The most common reason for owning a handgun or having a loaded gun in the home or car was personal protection.

    Only a third (33%) of pediatricians routinely counseled their patients about gun safety.

    Long gun overs were less likely to counsel patients about bike helmet safety and were less likely to use car seats and bike helmets for their own children.

    Conclusions 

    A large proportion of Alabama pediatricians are gun owners, but most store weapons safely.
