He reports over at Arms and the Law on a new National Institute of Health study, which is supposed to:
"investigate whether adolescents who consume alcohol and/or carry firearms, and/or whose daily activities occur in surroundings rich in alcohol and/or firearms, face a differential risk of being shot with a firearm or injured in a non-gun assault.""What next? Studies to find out if giving alcohol to teenagers increases sexual activity?
That's something a lot of us have long wondered about. Once we have the study's results, we'll know at last whether it is wise to give guns to drunken teenagers.
