Abstract
Description
This project is a follow-up to and an expansion of, an earlier report, Juvenile and Young Adult Firearm Use in South Carolina. There were two sets of objectives for the original project. The first involved determining the extent to which firearms are involved in violent crimes committed by children and young adults, identifying key characteristics of those arrested for committing these crimes, identifying who was being victimized by these crimes, and discovering under what circumstances these crimes were being committed. The second set of objectives involved learning more about what motivates children to possess firearms in the first place, how they manage to acquire firearms, and what factors are associated with the decision to use or possess firearms. The purpose of this report is to expand upon the first set of objectives and to reanalyze the findings of the second set, with the goal of achieving a higher degree of confidence in the self-reported data.
