Firearm Homocides Down

This bit from Pew adds to the body of data that indicates that "gun crime" has been on the decline for years. Wonder why nobody wants to talk about that?

Worthy of note is the blurb within the link that talks about suicides by firearm now account for 60% of firearm-induced deaths. Folks, mental health issues are serious business. Anyone who is serious about hitting the off switch, will do so with the most effective tool at hand. If a firearm isn't available, another path to the end will be chosen. Also note that the statistic is 60% of firearm-induced deaths are suicides... not that 60% of suicides are performed with firearms.
