A 90-year-old client discloses that he has two guns at home. The nurse asks him whether he has any grandchildren who come to visit or other school-aged visitors because the most common risk factor for school-aged children associated with injury or death from firearms is:
1. An argument with a stranger.
2. Firearm access.
3. Substance use.
4. Peer pressure.
Injury and death from firearms is a major public health problem in the United States. One reason that this is such an epidemic is that children, grandchildren, and neighbor’s children have easy access to firearms.
