2004 BRFSS Survey Results: Cumberland County

Firearms

The next three questions are about firearms. We are asking these in a health survey because of our interest in firearm-related injuries. Please include weapons such as pistols, shotguns, and rifles: but not BB guns, starter pistols, or guns that cannot fi re. Include those kept in a garage, outdoor storage area, or motor vehicle.

Are any firearms kept in or around your home?
