Epidemiologists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine found that, on average, guns did not protect those who possessed them from being shot in an assault. The study estimated that people with a gun were 4.5 times more likely to be shot in an assault than those not possessing a gun.
Of course, the serious studies are finding that the gun for protection belief is most likely false.
Why else would the gun lobby want to prevent serious research into this issue if the results didn't go against their claims?
