Suicide is a different subject, people will use the most convenient tool to complete any job.
Taking guns away does nothing, we need support for the individual.

Oh you didn't read the article then? Suicide by guns is the leading cause of gun violence in Canada. The article talks about suicides as a public health issue and GUN CONTROL as a Canadian policy. Read it....might learn something.

^^^ were did these suicides obtain the firearm used, I suspect the black market just like those who commit mass shootings.

So thank you for reinforcing my issue with gun control, if the black market isn’t completely shutdown then gun control is useless.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests. I am an old cantankerousness grump that happens to be very opinionated.

Most suicides are not guns, you want to stop suicides ? Start with mental health, hanging equipment, knives, drugs, then we'll discuss guns. When you learn to drive, start on a quiet street.

We've had this discussion before, you can't win when the only point you make has nothing to do with real life. I think we would all be better served if you worked on banning cancer. I'd be with you all the way

How many suicides will Trudeau's new long gun registry prevent?
