We will not speculate on the triggers for these deaths, nor on the methods.
Rather, we will honor their memories by discussing the links between guns and suicide.
This graphic is particularly telling.
As the data above show, this is simply not true. And there are things lawmakers can do right now to reduce the risk of suicide deaths:
3. Universal background checks on all firearm purchases, also currently pending in Congress.
4. Mandatory safe storage of firearms.
~40,000 people in America die from guns every year. It is a public health crisis. We must start treating it as such.
Guns and suicide are a deadly combination. We need congress to take these actions now. #NoRA
