Committing crimes, and being associated with people who are in the habit of committing crimes, greatly increases the probably of being shot. By another criminal (intentionally or negligently), by the cops, by a would-be victim, even by shooting your own dumb ass.

At the same time, lawfully owning firearms, or associating with those who own lawfully own firearms, is not associated with a significantly higher likelihood of being shot. Interesting thing, statistics.

Here's a hint: if the person possessing a pistol is under 18 and they're not being closely watched by the actual lawful owner of that pistol at a range, get the hell out of there. Dumbassery of a criminal nature is almost certainly occurring, it has a blast radius, and you don't want any to get on you.

What happens when a formerly lawful owner of firearms breaks the law? Is he immediately sent to the unlawful group for these interesting statistics?

No, I'm afraid these two have reached an evolutionary dead end.

Depends.

Are you talking about tax evasion, speeding, or removing the tag from a mattress? The guy that got a blowjob from his 16 year old girlfriend when he was 18? I don't have a statistical breakdown, but I have a pretty strong suspicion that kind of criminality doesn't increase the chances.

Considering that we live in a time when there is such a tightly woven web of little regulations that one can't go through the day without inadvertently doing something that could be prosecuted as a felony (new window), I don't think unlawfulness is the right indicator.

I'm talking about actual mens rea, a knowing intention to break society's norms, and either an indifference or a sociopathic attitude towards the effects they will have on other people. Some people grow out of that kind of thing; for others it's a life-long pattern of behavior. Either way, while they're possessing of that attitude and acting upon those impulses, statistically, they're dangerous to themselves and everyone around them.

Ah, yes. As the Things I Learn From My Patients thread proves, the most dangerous thing to be doing for getting a gunshot or knife wound is "minding my own business".

Or reading a Bible. Those things are just lead magnets.

I'm trying to figure out how Sumdood is involved here. You just know he's got a hand in this somewhere.

Teenagers, meet suicide bombers. Suicide bombers, meet teenagers.

If Sumdood is around, leave town.

Not that it will help, that guy is everywhere.

He's psychic, too. He's supernaturally attracted to locations where people are just minding their own business, arriving just as they were having a wholesome glass of milk just prior to/following bible study and/or choir practice.

Incidentally, the only thing more dangerous than "minding your own business" is to be in the process of "getting your life turned around". If you know anyone like that, get away from them like they're holding a grenade with the pin out.

Probably carelessness. Or what we in the biz call negligence. Anyone who is smart enough to obey the laws--all the laws--about gun ownership, including having gun locks or safes if they've got kids in the house, is probably not going to be shooting himself or someone else unless he really intends to do it.

Otoh, someone careless about weapons safety is probably careless about other safety precautions in their life. These will be the ones who also drive too fast when drinking, let their kids play unsupervised by the pool, and solve problems with physical force because fark you that's why. And if a gun is around, someone will get shot.

Just FYI, laws regarding children and locks/safes aren't universal. Plenty of states have no such requirement.

That takes balls. Robbing people of their guns...
