At least 65% of respondents reported that their husband kept a gun at home and thought that the gun was held illegally; 33% thought that the gun in the home was licensed and legal; and 2% did not know. Some respondents mentioned that although their husband did not own a gun, he had easy access to one from a friend, relative or neighbour.
