Most defensive uses of firearms go unreported. Often, the mere act of a homeowner, or potential victim, producing a firearm ends the confrontation!! Nothing happens!!

This week there has been a push in the media in gun deaths by suicide. This morning it was NPR turn.

I know of an VN era vlet that jumped off a bridge in California this year, had an ex girlfriend who's father drowned himself and any number of non gun related deaths. Japan, UK, Australia and the like are not lacking in suicide deaths due to not having access to guns.

There has not and will not be a time when I wish I didn't have a gun. The opposition is starting to lose ground. The Parkland tragedy was their big push but it didn't work. People can still see facts and figure it out.

Get people to stop killing themselves with guns and this isn’t even a debate.
Over 60% of gun-related deaths are suicides.

In 2011, roughly 11,000 firearm-related homicides for 2011 are one third the accidental motor vehicle deaths, or accidental poisonings, or a little less than the alcoholic liver disease deaths for the same period.

It might seem cold, but really, if you're going to do yourself in, have some consideration for the gun owners you leave behind and choose a different method so you don't torque the stats. Nitrogen gas is supposed to be very pleasant.
 
Here y'all go again, trying to cloud the issue with facts, facts that do not matter to the emotionally charged neurotic minded enemy.

Facts. Who needs 'em? Feelings beat facts 100% of the time. :rolleyes:

Agreed.

Right? Why wouldn’t you go out like a rockstar? I’ve never done drugs, but if it came to it, I’d rather die with a great buzz on and go to sleep forever rather than shooting myself. I mean, what if you try to shoot yourself and you miss?:rolleyes:
