    Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence ( 2013 )

    17 percent of high school students had carried a knife, gun, or club in the past 30 days. More than 5 percent had carried a gun. The same survey showed that more than 15.8 percent of high school students surveyed had seriously considered attempting suicide in the previous year., and 7.8% had actually made a suicide attempt.  (CDC, 2012b)

    I'd support tax-payer funded training in both and think it could be taught in gym class.
