    I said almost the same thing to some friends at a coffee house this evening when they just read it on their smarty pants phone.

    that would only stop a bad guy with a gun. there is little defense against an idiot with a gun.

    The real tragedy here is that not a single Darwin award was given out.

    The numbers also show universally that great availability of guns lead to increased suicide as the act is typically a transitory impulse and short-lived. I thought the GOP was pro-life and Christian?

    Israel figured this out which is why soldiers have to leave their guns at their base when they go home for the weekend.

    EK: As I understand it, there’s a stronger link between guns and suicide than between guns and homicide. And one of the really interesting parts of your paper is your recounting of the Israeli military’s effort to cut suicides among soldiers by restricting access to guns.
    JR: Yes, it’s very striking. In Israel, it used to be that all soldiers would take the guns home with them. Now they have to leave them on base. Over the years they’ve done this — it began, I think, in 2006 — there’s been a 60 percent decrease in suicide on weekends among IDS soldiers. And it did not correspond to an increase in weekday suicide. People think suicide is an impulse that exists and builds. This shows that doesn’t happen. The impulse to suicide is transitory. Someone with access to a gun at that moment may commit suicide, but if not, they may not.

    how about claiming to be an educational poster that labels a shotgun as a "rifle?" that's the kind of **** that sends the gun nuts I know into a tailspin when it comes from the lamestream media.
