Workplaces that allowed guns were about five times more likely to experience a homicide as those where all weapons were banned, concludes a May 2005 report in the American Journal of Public Health that analyzed North Carolina employers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says workplace shootings caused 420 deaths in 2009 and 421 in 2008.
