According to the Pew Research Center, 37 percent of adults reported having a firearm in their household, and 48 percent of firearm owners indicated that the primary reason they own a firearm is for protection; approximately 32 percent reported using them for hunting. A 2008 article in the New England Journal of Medicine reported that when a firearm is stored in a home, the possibility of a homicide in that home increases by up to 170 percent, and the possibility of suicide increases by up to 460 percent. Data on the location of firearm homicides shows that 4 out of 10 occur in a home; 8 out of 10 firearm suicides occur in a home; and 9 out of 10 unintentional shooting fatalities occur in a home. Approximately one-third of all Americans with children under the age of 18 have a firearm in their home; of these, 34 percent have children younger than 12. A total of 1,700,000 children live in a home with unlocked, loaded guns. Sixty-eight percent of school shooters acquired their guns from their own homes or homes of relatives. Project ChildSafe is a nationwide educational program that promotes the safe storage of firearms in a home by providing responsible gun owners with the tools and information for securely storing their guns.
