    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual meeting of the Western Trauma Association. Alta, Wyoming (USA), 1996/02/26.

    Objective 

    To determine the nature and causes of gun violence among urban young people.

    Methods 

    We conducted a confidential survey of 1,219 7th and 10th graders in Boston and Milwaukee, regarding their attitudes and behaviors toward violence and handguns.

    Results 

    Twenty-nine percent have had a member of their immediate family shot, 42% could get a gun if they wanted, 28% have handled a gun without adult knowledge or supervision, 17% have carried a concealed gun, and 3% reported bringing a gun to school in the past 30 days.

    Nine percent admitted smoking cigarettes in the past week, 11% admitted smoking marijuana.

    Twenty-five percent were attacked or threatened within the past year.

    Reasons for gun carrying were mostly related to perceived safety/threats/revenge (73%), followed by casual handling (17%), hunting (4%), being cool (3%), target practice (2%), and gangs (1%). The following factors were significantly correlated with gun handling by khi2 analysis, at p<0.001 (percentage of respondents admitting unsupervised gun handling shown in parentheses) :

    • male (39%) versus female (19%) ;

    • 10th graders (35%) versus 7th graders (24%) seat-belt nonusers (35%) versus users (20%) ;

    • students who state they have poor grades (39%) versus good grades (26%) ;

    • cigarette smokers (61%) versus nonsmokers (25%) ;

    • have a gun in the home (46%) versus no gun in the home (23%). (...)
