    ...I think suicides by firearm are counted in firearm mortality statistics, though different groups might have different policies.

    But to make a wildly inappropriate comparison...a home run counts as a RBI.  Why would a suicide not count as a death?  We've seen cases, like Sandy Hook, where the shooter and his mother are not counted among the memorialized dead, but they are indeed dead and the toll by gun for that day is 28.
