  •  IndieGuy, there's nothing "hidden" here. (5+ / 0-)

    HJB, as I read his work over three diaries on a very delicate subject, is hiding nothing at all. Guns are an effective vehicle for suicide. The most effective, in fact.

    And he is arguing against both suicide - as a practicing professional - and guns, as someone who sees their potential for instant harm, to self and to others. There's no serious argument against that potential in my view, for it is self-evident.

    What this means, what gun regulation if any we might suggest because of this, is a separate topic. HJB has done a set of well researched articles. Marshaling authorities who have written on the subject and his own professional instincts have validity standing for themselves without respect to any "agenda," his or yours.
