One in five Colorado high school students believe they could easily get a handgun, according to a University of Colorado study published in March. The study, from the Anschutz Medical Campus and the Colorado School of Public Health, examined data from more than 46,000 students. “There is not a lot of data out there to compare this to, but just from a gut-check standpoint, it seems like a lot of teens at least perceive they have access to a handgun,” said lead author Ashley Brooks-Russell, an assistant professor in the Colorado School of Public Health.
