Lots of people who attempt suicide with a gun end up surviving. I know 2 people personally who tried and lived. Just saying, guns don't always kill even with a head shot. You're probably alot less likely to come back from hanging yourself or swallowing a bottle of pills.Read a stat that 9 out of 10 people who have a failed suicide attempt, will no longer attempt suicide, 10% will succeed
Gun pretty much takes that away that 90% with seconds thoughts
Suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem for most people who attempt it
I am pretty sure most of the illegal guns were stolen or otherwise came into the illegal gun market through legal channels
As far as I know criminals are not making their own guns in vast numbers
Guns don't kill people bullets kill people, its not a good argument to say guns are not the issue when they clearly are
Securing guns is more the issue in my opinion, so criminals slowly run out of them, they lose guns because they get caught with them, get rid of them because it can link them to a crime
I think if legal gun owners actually did what they are suppose to do, secure their guns, we would see fewer and fewer guns in the illegal market
And while stolen guns that were legal once surely count for alot of gun crimes, criminals don't need to "make guns". TONS of guns are illegally smuggled into the U.S. Around a quarter of a million guns a year just from Mexico. Its harder to buy a gun legally than it is to buy a gun smuggled in on the black market. So how do strict gun laws help if criminals have easier access than law abiding citizens?
Not that I disagree about gun owners needing to be responsible and keep their guns locked and secure. I may talk about guns here but I never share photos or get too specific, I never mention where I keep them, and I can assure you where I do keep them is secure and no burglar has a chance in hell of stealing one of my guns, and if somehow they did, most of them won't work if they tried to use them.
