Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n3 p714-26 Aug 2001
Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 were used to examine factors, such as family and neighborhood environment, associated with carrying a handgun among adolescent males. As expected, results indicated males were more likely than their peers to carry handguns if they engaged in other problematic behaviors, had witnessed someone else being shot, and were involved in gangs.
