    that you provided here. It seems to fit what I found out about the problem of guns and suicide. "you cannot stop them" they say -- they need this myth to discount the possibility that guns exacerbate the situation.

      That leaves the rest of them undeterred and ignored.

      16,000+ a year without a firearm.

      The gun is the symptom, not the cause and we still lose those other people making it about the gun.

      I get you don't like guns, I don't either but it isn't going to fix the problem, as the British are finally finding out.
