The Truth About Firearm "Accidents" and Firearms "Accidents" in the Home

From Julie Golab's blog:
Despite what many media outlets and politicians would have you believe, guns are not a leading cause of death in the home. The Consumer Reports article sites a study published by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine that concluded that firearm mishaps accounted for just 1 percent of all accidental deaths in the home. Specifically, for unintentional deaths in the home, guns accounted for 332 of the 30,569 and for “all locations” the study reports 706 deaths out of 65,954.
