Abstract
Although homicide has been declining in the United States since the early 1990s, Intimate Partner Homicide (IPH) has remained more stable, representing a persistent public health problem. Females killed by their partners are more likely to be killed by a gun than any other method, making access to guns a critical piece of this problem. Yet community access to guns remains a sorely understudied area of intimate partner violence research. This study considers the relationship between the rate of federally licensed firearm dealers and intimate partner homicide incidents across counties in 16 states. Additionally, this thesis considers whether county type (rural versus urban) and county racial / ethnic composition moderate the relationship between licensed gun stores and partner homicides. Findings from a series of negative binomial regression models reveal that a higher rate of licensed firearm dealers is associated with a higher incidence of partner homicide in urban areas but rural counties. This relationship in urban areas is not moderated by a county’s racial or ethnic composition. The relationship also held after accounting for state variation in DVRO gun laws aimed at dispossessing guns from the hands of domestic violence offenders.
