James D. Rossi. The felons in the sample showed wide variability in their prior criminal weapons behavior. Self-administered questionnaires were completed by 1,874 felons in State prisons in Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Nevada, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, and Massachusetts. Approximately 40 percent of the sample claimed never to have committed any crime armed with any kind of weapon; these are the unarmed criminals who are used for comparison purposes throughout the analysis. Another one-tenth had committed armed crime, some of them often, but never with a gun.
