Americans bought at least 150m guns in decade since Sandy Hook shooting While there’s lots of interest in the eye-popping total number of guns in the US, “what matters is how these guns are distributed across people and households”, said Matthew Miller, a Northeastern University professor who specializes in firearm research, and what that distribution means for their increased risk of gun suicide, homicide or accidental injury. The Pandemic May Have Changed Gun Ownership In America For The Long Haul Research also shows higher risks for violence in homes with guns, especially homicides committed by men against women, according to Matthew Miller, a professor at Northeastern University who studies gun violence and suicide prevention.

Chan School of Public Health. Women in homes with guns owned by others are at higher risk to die by suicide, study says “The question that we wanted to get the answer to was how does a woman’s suicide risk change when someone that she’s living with in a gun-free home becomes a new hand gun owner?” said Dr. Matthew Miller, the lead author of the study and a professor at Northeastern University.

The Crime Report Women, Guns and Suicide The lead author, Dr. Matthew Miller, a professor of epidemiology at Northeastern University, compared it to analyzing second-hand risks associated with smoking. “The question we tried to address is what happens to a woman’s suicide risk when someone she lives with her brings a handgun into their gun-free home for the first time,” he said in a […] San Francisco Chronicle Women in homes with handguns are at 50% higher risk for suicide, study finds “The question we tried to address is what happens to a woman’s suicide risk when someone she lives with brings a handgun into their gun-free home for the first time. The answer: her chances of dying by suicide increases by more than 40%,” Dr. Matthew Miller, a professor of epidemiology at Northeastern University and the […] The Sacramento Bee Women 50% more likely to die by suicide if they live with handgun owner, study finds Dr. Matthew Miller, the lead author on the study and a professor at Northeastern University in Boston, said it is the lethality of guns that accounts for the significant difference. Other studies have shown, he said, that women in gun-free households do not enjoy any better mental health conditions or think about suicide any less […] The Hill The number of teens who report carrying handguns has spiked, study says Researchers at Northeastern University attempted to answer how adolescents get their guns, conducting a study that found more than one-third of teens ages 13 to 17 said they could gain access in less than five minutes to a loaded firearm kept in their family home — while half could gain access in 60 minutes or less. Matthew Miller for Northeastern Global News The research is clear: White people are not more likely than Black people to be killed by police. The research is clear: White people are not more likely than Black people to be killed by police. When President Donald Trump responded to a question about Black people who have died at the hands of U.S. law enforcement by focusing his attention on white victims, he was engaging in a “grotesque” misdirection, says Matt Miller, a Northeastern professor who studies gun violence. “Black people are more likely to be killed per capita by law enforcement than are white people,” Miller says. Here’s why guns increase the risk of suicide–especially in stressful times Here’s why guns increase the risk of suicide–especially in stressful times Handgun owners are almost four times more likely to die by suicide than people who don’t have guns, according to research by Matt Miller. 1,000 people in the US die every year in police shootings. Who are they? 1,000 people in the US die every year in police shootings. Who are they?

Northeastern University researcher Matthew Miller says that storing your gun more safely can save lives Northeastern University researcher Matthew Miller says that storing your gun more safely can save lives A modest increase in the number of people who store firearms in their homes safely could help to save the lives of hundreds of children. Does having a gun at home really make you safer? Does having a gun at home really make you safer? Keeping a gun in your home is supposed to keep you safe. Northeastern professor Matthew Miller’s research suggests that the opposite is true. Clearing up misconceptions about gun violence could make suicide attempts less deadly, study says Clearing up misconceptions about gun violence could make suicide attempts less deadly, study says There are roughly twice as many suicides as homicides in the United States every year, and more than half of them involve guns. Do more guns lead to more fatal police shootings? Do more guns lead to more fatal police shootings? A new study by researchers from Northeastern and Harvard examines the correlation between gun laws and shootings by police officers.
