Using data from a mailed survey of a random-sample of 422 Ohio psychiatrists, this article summarizes psychiatrists’ attitudes and practices regarding counseling on firearm safety. While psychiatrists perceived firearm safety to be an important issue, almost half had never thought about discussing the issue with their patients. Most psychiatrists reported limited training in firearm safety counseling, and felt unprepared to broach the issue.
