5. Since you are so concerned.....

 

A casual look shows more than that. , for crying out loud.

No, this problem is a lot more widespread than the pro gun crowd would have us believe. That's their strategy, to lie about the extent of a problem and then divide by all the guns in the entire country and say the percentage is insignificant. They combine that approach with the one in the article in which they claim nothing can be done about it. But that's usually self-serving nonsense.


Perhaps you can cite to how much more "widespread" this "problem" is? Got stats?

Your problem is that this method of suicide is statistically insignificant, and no matter how many times you yell "Suicide!!" in a crowded discussion forum, no-one will give you the unreasoned stampede you want. Speaking of self-serving nonsense. Selling fear... you suck at it.

But since you think it's such an overwhelming problem, please state your proposals to effectively deal with it without trampling the Rights of everyone in the process.
