    That's a great find. The article in the OP has a link to the original research paper.
    Three points to note: First, the paper was published in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, but it is not a 'Harvard study.' The authors work at the Pacific Research Institute and Simon Fraser University. Second, it was published six years ago. Finally, Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy is a peer-reviewed publication.

    Thanks for posting the link to the original paper. BTW it is only 46 pages and 1/2 is references etc.

    Yes it is published in the Journal but that means it was (as you pointed out) it was peer-reviewed. Also her is a link to the CDC report. You have to log on to download but no cost. Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence

    Oh, don't forget dogs.....especially the kind with teeth




    And, gravel. Man when those five year olds start hucking that stuff, an eye could get put out. Gravel is the gateway weapon.
