Summary

Abstract

In a previous report (Series 2, No.1), we examined the incidence of firearm casualties in New South Wales and the characteristics of both the shooters and victims involved in gun accidents. We now turn to two other types of firearm casualty, namely suicide (or attempted suicide) and criminally inflicted death or injury.
