  •  In England the method of choice for suicide (0+ / 0-)

    was a gas oven. When that was no longer an option, the suicide rate went down 30% and stayed there. Convenience counts with suicide.

    Now as far as actually keeping a gun. RkBAers have many many excuses for not doing that. They love the oopsie method of gun safety we currently use.

    1. Oopsie, someone took my gun, better watch out it's a dandy, I'm going to the store and get another. It's not my fault.

    2. Oopsie, my gun went off, haw haw haw, I'm going to the store and get more ammo.

    3. Oopsie I made a viral youtube threatening to kill everyone. Please give my gun school and arsenal back. OK

    guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?

      guns and suicide. The rate does decrease very significantly, most won't go to the rope, knife, tailpipe or drugs.
