“There’s a very real fear in America right now, which is that if we don’t do something about it, we’re going to see more and more people lose their lives because of guns,” said Dan Gross, the director of the University of Chicago Crime Lab.
“We’re in a situation where people are more and less willing to come forward and report crimes because of fear of being prosecuted or worse, losing their job.”
But experts caution that the numbers aren’t perfect, and the problem can be even more acute for people who are more likely to carry a weapon.
For example, some states don’t require people to report a mental illness to the police, and some don’t even require them to report crimes.
The lack of data on gun ownership is a major problem in many parts of the country, said John Rosenthal, director of research for the University and John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
The gun-owning population is a fairly small population, so it’s not that they’re necessarily saying, ‘I’m going to have a gun and I’m going out to a party, and I want to get the guy who shot me dead,'” Rosenthal said. “
In the case of guns, the data is limited because of what people who carry them say, and what police departments report.

The National Institute of Justice recently estimated that there are about 16 million gun owners in the U.S., and a recent Pew Research Center survey found that about 8 in 10 gun owners have been the victims of a crime, either because of a friend or a family member.
Gun ownership also has a big impact on mental health.
About 15 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 say they have a mental health disorder.
Another 15 percent have a substance abuse disorder.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that between 3.5 million and 4.2 million Americans have some sort of mental health issue, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse and substance dependence.
The CDC also says that about 4 million Americans over the age of 65 have some form of mental illness.
And the CDC also reports that people with a mental disorder are more than twice as likely to commit suicide than people without one.
“That’s not to say there aren’t other things that contribute to people being depressed or anxious or feeling hopeless or depressed,” Gross said.
In addition, he said, mental illness and drug use can make it more difficult to get a job.
“It’s an economic problem.
We’re seeing a lot of people losing their jobs because of mental illnesses,” he added.
But gun-owners are just as likely as the general population to report having a mental-health issue.
The vast majority of gun-related homicides are committed by people with mental illness, according to the FBI.
And a study of more than 20,000 people found that those with mental illnesses were more likely than other people to be shot, even though they were less likely to use guns.
For instance, in states with the highest rates of mental-illness homicides, such as Connecticut and Florida, people who have mental illness were four times more likely as people without mental illness or substance abuse to be killed by gun-shot victims.
A report by the Institute of Medicine in July found that mental-disorders are more common among young adults than older people, and that people without a mental disability are more vulnerable to the consequences of a mental breakdown.
A recent study by the RAND Corporation, a private nonprofit research organization, found that more than 40 percent of gun owners had a mental impairment, such a learning disability, severe anxiety or depression, substance addiction or mental health issues.
“They’re at risk of having a gun accidentally and going to harm themselves or others, or being shot by a law-abiding gun owner, and their lives are in danger,” said Dr. Michael Siegel, a former FBI official who is now director of policy and advocacy at the American Psychiatric Association.
But it’s difficult to determine exactly how much gun violence is related to mental illness because there is no nationwide database for people with disabilities, according in part to the National Institute for Justice.
The study cited the “inadequate access to mental health services” as one of the reasons why there are so few national gun-violence surveys.
The RAND study also found that the rates of firearm suicides among gun owners are higher than the rates for the general public.
That means that, in general, people with severe mental illness are less likely than the general populations to commit self-inflicted homicides, said Siegel.
Gun-owners who have a history of mental problems are also at higher risk of being shot, according a study published in July in the journal The Lancet Psychiatry.
