The Impact of Poverty, Fear of Crime, and Crime Victimization on Keeping Firearms for Protection and Unsafe Gun-Storage Practices a Review and Analysis with Policy Recommendations
Vacha, Edward F.
Article from Journal - ilmiah internasional
Urban Education vol. 35 no. 4 (Nov. 2000)
This article reviews the literature with regard to firearms accidents among lowincome, urban children younger than 13. The tendency of low-income families to keep unsecured protection guns may contribute to the higher rate of firearms accidents among low-income children. The evidence suggests that the decision to keep a gun for protection is largely a practical response to the conditions a person perceives in his or her neighborhood. Reducing the consequences of risky gun behavior among low-income families requires policies and programs that eliminate experiences associated with such behavior and that train children to recognize and avoid risky gun situations.
