  •  This only applies to suicides inside the home. (8+ / 0-)

    Everyone who killed themselves away from their own residence was simply excluded from the results.

    The state by state comparison is more useful than that.

      that took place outside the killers' homes. One advanced and refused to drop a firearm in a confrontation with several law enforcement officers. The firearm was found to have been emptied prior to the cops' arrival.

      The other deliberately drove into a lake -- from the top of a bridge about 75 feet above the water, which was about 80 feet deep at the time (the lake is now nearly dry; the vehicle's remains were uncovered last summer).
