We welcome vox.com’s attempts to shine a spotlight on firearms-related suicides. Oh wait. No. No we don’t. They’ve got a single-minded, fundamentally flawed perspective on the problem: preventing suicides is all about “easy access to guns” which are “more lethal” than other forms of suicide (tell that to the Japanese) and inhibit “intervention.” Setting aside the eminently debunkable stats in this anti-gun agritprop . . .
common sense says that early detection and treatment for suicidal citizens is the best way to tackle the problem. Which is why Bloomberg anti-ballistic bully boys (and Moms) ignore the challenge of firearms-related suicide – letting the the death of thousands of Americans slide in pursuit of their goal of civilian disarmament.
