  1. Gun storage patterns in US homes with children : A pediatric practice-based survey.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To describe gun storage patterns in gun-owning families with children.

    Design 

    Survey of parents attending participating offices.

    Setting 

    Twenty-nine urban, suburban, and rural pediatric practices in Chicago, Ill ; New Jersey ; Houston, Tex ; Utah ; Georgia ; Iowa ; and South Carolina.

    Subjects 

    Parents of children attending offices for well-or sick-child care.

    Selection Procedure 

    Consecutive sample of families seen during the 1-week study period.

    Measurements and Analyses 

    Logistic regression models were constructed to identify sociodemographic factors associated with keeping guns loaded.

    Results 

    Of 5233 surveys, 1682 (32%) indicated ownership of at least one powder firearm.

    Of the gun-owning families, 61% reported at least one gun unlocked, and 15% reported at least one gun loaded.

    Rifles were more often stored unlocked (62% rifles vs 52% handguns, P<. 001, z=4.60 ; two-proportion z-test), but handguns were more likely to be kept loaded (3% rifles vs 27% handguns, P<. 001).

    Seven percent of gun-owning families reported at least one gun unlocked and loaded (handguns 12 times more likely than rifles).

    Only 30% of households reported all guns stored unloaded and locked up.

    The best-fit logistic regression model for keeping a gun loaded identified four predictor variables : owning a gun for self-protection, work-related gun ownership, owning a handgun, and no men in the home.

    Conclusions 

    Because most gun-owning families store guns load...
