    Deen, you inspired me.

    Good catch!

    Gun suicides up; is Obama-nomics to blame?

    NBC News is reporting today that suicides with firearms have gone up in the top 50 metropolitan areas, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the spike coincides with the first years of the Obama administration when Democrats controlled Congress, a fact now being discussed on the Northwest Firearms forum.

    If I was stuck in NO, NY, Chicago, Detroit, or LA,...

    I'd probably kill myself too!

    This just proves that dem policies fail and always hurt the very people they claim to help. The party of compassion.

    What, exactly, are these "gun suicides" ???? I've never heard of a gun killing itself.

    What, no calls for investigation into the link between mind-altering prescription drugs and suicide? Suicidal thoughts are a common warning in labeling these drugs.
