Didn't see that coming, probably should have.

Funny statistic you don't hear about suicides, but back in the day, in England stoves used to be fueled by charcoal. When you wanted to kill yourself, you stuck your head in the oven. They switch to gas, and suicide rates go way down. Same thing happens when they put the nets up around bridges people like to an hero themselves off of.

I wonder what would happen if people with any history of depression didn't have access to guns?

Significant decrease in the number of suicides. The greater the delay, chance of error, and difficulty of execution the more likely some is to be interrupted, fail, or simply give up. Most people are less like Million Dollar Baby and more like Holden Caulfield.

They'd be the first to be rounded up into the FEMA camps when Obama runs for his third term, obviously.

Kirk Franklin, 42, of nearby Saginaw died after shooting himself at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday during the NRA 500 Sprint Cup race, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner.

Franklin was involved in a verbal altercation with other race spectators before the incident, said Daniel Segura, a Fort Worth Police Department spokesman.
That's one way to get the last word.

He could have failed and only blown half his face off or something and he wouldn't be dead.

Huh.

I seem to recall reading that something like 95% of gunshot wounds are non-fatal (assuming you seek medical attention quickly).
