    and lucky. The parents I've known who gave up their guns didn't do it until after their teenage sons used their gun to commit suicide.

    I've posted before that I've personally known five teenagers who committed suicide by gun. I was wrong. My husband has since reminded me that I didn't include the son of one of his business friends, and my best friend reminded me that I didn't include her husband's nephew. I didn't know those kids, but I did know their families, so I guess I should have included them too.
