"During NRA conventions, gun injuries drop 20% nationwide—63% in hosting state
Researchers say it shoots holes in the argument that untrained users cause accidents."

In their analysis, Jena and Olenski concluded that the findings:

“...are consistent with reductions in firearm injuries occurring as a result of lower rates of firearm use during the brief period when many firearm owners and owners of places where firearms are used may be attending an NRA convention. Our results suggest that firearm-safety concerns and risks of injury are relevant even among experienced gun owners.”

In a statement to CNN, NRA's director of public affairs, Jennifer Baker, called the study “absurd.” She continued: "This study is another example of when data and numbers fly in the face of logic and common sense.”
