The Centers for Disease Control conducted but never released a bombshell survey which indicated incidents of defensive gun uses in America dwarf those of offensive gun uses.

The CDC’s study backed up a similar study conducted by Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck one year prior in 1995 which indicated there were over 2.2 million defensive gun uses per year, but Kleck only just learned about it because the results were hidden for over two decades.

Kleck’s new paper–“What Do CDC’s Surveys Say About the Frequency of Defensive Gun Uses?“–finds that the agency had asked about DGUs in its Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System in 1996, 1997, and 1998.

Those polls, Kleck writes,

are high-quality telephone surveys of enormous probability samples of U.S. adults, asking about a wide range of health-related topics. Those that addressed DGU asked more people about this topic than any other surveys conducted before or since. For example, the 1996 survey asked the DGU question of 5,484 people. The next-largest number questioned about DGU was 4,977 by Kleck and Gertz (1995), and sample sizes were much smaller in all the rest of surveys on the topic (Kleck 2001).

Kleck was impressed with how well the survey worded its question: “During the last 12 months, have you confronted another person with a firearm, even if you did not fire it, to protect yourself, your property, or someone else?” Respondents were told to leave out incidents from occupations, like policing, where using firearms is part of the job. Kleck is impressed with how the question excludes animals but includes DGUs outside the home as well as within it.
