5,116 violent crimes — including homicides, sexual assaults, androbberies — in 1997. Tucson averages about 50 homicides a year.“Just like any other city in Arizona and in the nation we haveour issues, but it is not crime-ridden,” said Vice Mayor ReginaRomero. “I would never say you have to carry a gun or you haveto be afraid for your life.”Research has produced inconclusive results on whetherdefensive gun use lowers crime. Some research suggests gunsresult in more suicides and accidental deaths, while other stud-ies have shown criminals are wary of gun owners. “Peopledon’t want to confront an armed person at home,” said GarenJ. Wintemute, director of the UC Davis Violence PreventionResearch Program. “But, separately, there is solid evidence thatin communities with higher rates of gun ownership, burglaryrates are up, not down, and that’s because guns are hot loot.”Wintemute said it’s likely the risk of violence in the homeparticipating in the gun giveaway will go up.But those behind the program argue shotguns are affordable,easy to use and don’t require precise aim when shooting, makingthem the perfect home protection weapon. The goal is to armhundreds of people in Tucson, Houston, New York, Chicago,Detroit and at least 10 other cities by the end of the year.Mary Dienstberger, 88, of Delphos, died Thursday atVan Wert In-Patient HospiceCenter.Arrangements are incom-plete at Harter and SchierFuneral Home.Elizabeth L.
