Gun injuries decrease 20% during NRA conferences, study findsA new study has found that the number of firearm injuries in the US decreases dramatically during National Rifle Association conventions, casting doubt on the claim that most gun injuries are caused by inexperienced users. Researchers from Harvard Medical School and Columbia University reviewed 10 years of data on emergency department visits and hospitalizations during the NRA’s convention dates, as well as the three weeks before and three weeks after. The finding contradicts many gun advocates’ argument that firearm injuries are caused by poorly trained users.
