The latest theme of those who oppose guns seems to be suicide (e.g. here). All those naughty guns lying around makes people pop themselves off, apparently. So the USA with all its guns must be the leading country for suicides?
Far from it. The USA is well down on the list. It comes in at no. 34 on the list of suicides per head. If you indulged in the sort of shallow reasoning that Leftists use, you could in fact conclude that having guns around generates a PROTECTIVE effect against suicide.
