During National Rifle Association annual conventions, when about 80,000 gun owners spend a few days focused on seminars, events and meetings, America seems to be safer, new research suggests.

More specifically, the rate of firearm-related injuries when NRA members gather en masse falls by 20% nationwide, according to a study published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.
When a state hosted a convention, and presumably a higher percentage of local gun enthusiasts attended, gun-related injuries in that state fell 50%, said Dr. Anupam Jena, the study’s senior author and an associate professor of health care policy at Harvard Medical School.
  1. Well geewhiz I wonder why that happens?? So how else can these sh*thole gun owners be distracted so they don’t shoot others. Lock them up might work.
