While 5.2 percent of fraternity and sorority members surveyed in the 2001 Harvard School of Public Health College Alcohol Survey owned guns, 4.1 percent of non-Greek undergraduates were gun owners.

Matthew Miller, an assistant professor of health policy and management at Harvard University and the primary author of the study , said that “the kinds of behavior that students who have guns exhibit are also the kinds of behavior that students in fraternities often demonstrate,†listing binge drinking, driving while intoxicated and “general aggression†as behaviors associated with fraternity members.

“There’s a decent chance that at any school where students have guns, members would be more likely to have guns than other students,†Miller said. “And they’d probably be engaging in riskier behavior, maybe with their guns.â€

Hmm...

Went to college? Check (twice)

In a fraternity? Check (President one year)

Owned gun(s)? Well duh...

Drank my face off, at least weekly? Check

Other risky behaviors? Uhh... check (but not the general aggression part. I was more the calm, collected, sardonic-asshole-in-the-corner-making-fun-of-everyone-in-sight type)

So yeah, I guess lump me in with the 5.2% in that study I guess. :roll:
