I was searching various websites for today’s topic and happened upon an article discussing the partnership in suicide prevention of the NSSF and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We’ve discussed suicide many times over the years and guns are often utilized where available. What is interesting is suicide rates did not decrease in countries where firearm availability was reduced, they actually increased. So as with all things firearm the gun is not the problem, it is the person. It will be interesting to see the results of this pilot program and I applaud the efforts of both organizations. Keep up the good work!
