174. Sounds like the arguement you are trying to make is
that a gun accident in the home is more likely to occur in a home with a gun. If that is it, then, well, duh. A swimming pool accident is more likely at a home with a swimming pool (way over 10 times more likely than a gun accident by the way). Or an ATV accident is more likely to occur at a home with ATVs (way over 7 times more likely by the way).

explanation before you ask..There are 10 times more drowning fatalities among children in residential swimming pools than there are gun accident fatalities, while 5 times more homes have guns than have residential swimming pools.
