    240 'firearm' suicides? If people don't like Kansas, why don't they just move? :confused:

    The KC star is a horribly liberally slanted newspaper...... But I like the HP pic!

    Those firearms deaths are suicides. Just because people kill themselves with firearms more than they die in fatal crashes doesn't have a single bit of significance.

    Just another hack job, that instead of extolling the virtues of safer cars, points out that gun deaths are higher....

    I just wondered why they used a C9 for the story pic. The story is just more BS, imo. I really wish that when someone commits a "gun crime", that it was required to report if they were legally able to posess a firearm. For example, last week in the cosmopolitan dream that is St Louis, a guy was shot and arrested for pointing a gun at a LEO. Funny thing is, the guy was on parole for shooting at LEO's back in '09, and had served less than 1/2 of his sentence.
    As for suicides, I knew 2 people that shot themselves, 2 who carbon monoxided themselves in cars, 4 that hanged themselves, and some overdoses that may or may not have been suicides.

    Your correct. It means nothing, except an argument point for an anti-gun media. :rolleyes:

    AU banned guns and suicide rates did not change proving that guns are not an issue with suicides.

    When they say "firearm deaths" they are including suicides, murders, hunting accidents, self defense shootings, police shootings, etc.

    I read a couple weeks ago were someone figured it out that you are 900 times more likely to be accidently killed by a doctor than accidently killed by a firearm. Maybe we should ban doctors?

    It's simple; the libtards should ban suicides. Or maybe try it themselves to see if it's a viable solution. Just sayin :rolleyes:

    Suicide is already illegal.

    You get a longer sentence if you're successful?
