For every time a gun in the home was used in a self-defense or legally justifiable shooting, there were four unintentional shootings, seven criminal assaults or homicides, and 11 attempted or completed suicides.

You cant really blame guns on suicide, come on thats undeniable

Yes I Can. It turns out that there is often a very small window for suicidal thoughts to manifest into action…that if you can’t figure out a way to kill yourself in  a 10 minute window, you’ll wise up and figure out how to make it through. This is indicative of the biochemical nature of depression…it isn’t really about how you’re feeling or what’s happening in your life, it’s biochemical disease that can be treated with medication. 

It is extremely important (especially if there are young people in the home) that there is no way for them to get access to a gun in that 10 minute window. If there is a key and they can find it, you are putting your family at risk because severe depression can often have a very sudden onset.

Access to a gun triples your chances of death by suicide. To be clear, it does not increase the chances of suicide by gun, it increases the chances of self-inflicted death of any kind.
