For $643K, Here's the Question, Alex!

Your $643,000 will pay for the study to answer this question:

...whether adolescents who consume alcohol and/or carry firearms, and/or whose daily activities occur in surroundings rich in alcohol and/or firearms, face a differential risk of being shot with a firearm or injured in a non-gun assault.

You've already lost the $643K, so what's your bet on the answer?

That they'll elide actual consumption/carrying of firearms with "richness" of the "environment" when convenient. We'll end up with conclusions that are largely founded on statistics from gangbangers carrying guns and staying drunk, but used to tar-and-feather families that own a couple of rifles and have a beer-or-three after work.

This is a trick question, right? Like "Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?"
