and anyone else that may have reliable info/statistics, etc. I was reading an article on the shooting at yahoo.com, and one of the comments from someone who's obviously anti-gun said this in response to another person's response about how (gun) accidents do and will happen): "That is true, and fatal firearm accidents are much more frequent than repelled intruders. Statistically, there is no case for guns in the home. They make homicide of a family member twice as likely, suicide of a family member 10 times more likely, and accidental death of a child 10 times more likely." The above doesn't sound right to me, but I can't find anything reliable to refute that. Any ideas?
