Actually, Fred, you would be wrong.

People 6 years and older are 3.6 times more likey to be bitten by an unfamiliar dog.

Cause, Setting and ownership analysis of dog bites in Bay County, Florida from 2009 to 2010. Zoo noses Public Health, 2015, vol. 62 #1.

Funny about that science stuff.

Fred,

Again, I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you...

If you have a dog in your house your more likely to get bit by a dog than someone who doesn't have a dog in their house. Now that science.

I was just speculating that there are likely many confounding factors, probably dealt with in your references. The statement you made would lead simple minds to conclude that the act of bringing a gun into a house independent of pre-existing factors doubles the rate of people being shot.

If that were the case, removal of all guns would result in a decline of people being shot by 50%, which is logically impossible.

The good thing about science is that it's true whether you believe in it or not.

Or maybe The Accessibility of Firearms and Risk for Suicide and Homicide Victimization among Household Members: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Annalso of Internal Medicine, Volume 160, number 2.

Either would be good.

tbr made no allusion to a causal relationship, although most people would infer one, probably by reasoning that it makes it easier for family members to shoot each other. I would imagine that to at least some extent that that is true.

As is (aggravatingly) common, the factors are complex. I would guess that having a gun in your house is probably at least something of an indicator that your situation is a higher risk one already, such as living in crap neighborhood, or regularly hanging out with druggies or gang members.
