GUNS AND SUICIDE
September is National Suicide Prevention Month. This month Everytown for Gun Safety is highlighting the ways in which access to a gun during a period of personal crisis is often the difference between life and death — and what we can do to reduce deaths by gun suicide. 90 percent of people who attempt suicide with a gun will die. Over 90 percent of those who attempt suicide by other means will live. Storing your gun locked and unloaded is one way to prevent it from getting into the wrong hands at the wrong time. Be SMART and save lives.
