The point is that guns are frequently used in suicides, and in most places suicide is still considered an unlawful act. One could debate whether or not it should be allowed, under what circumstances, etc.(righties usually vehemently oppose euthanasia, I would point out) but most consider it immoral as well as illegal. Thus, anything which makes it easier, such as a gun, would have to be considered part of the suicide PROBLEM, no? Is that illogical in some way?
In any case, it's hilariously wrong and pathetic to blame certain states or certain climates while glossing over the obvious culpability of gun ownership. Clearly, gun laws reduce gun possession which reduces the suicide rate. Evasion isn't going to make that fact go away, sorry.
Tell us how any law will prevent suicide???

540 gun related deaths in Chicago last year.
17 already this year.
Guns are illegal in Chicago and Illinois requires a F.O.I.D. to buy guns, ammo, even BB's.
Obviously, gun control doesn't work in Illinois.
#1 You would have to be an idiot to register or turn in your gun even if they repealed the 2nd amendment. Ill take my chances with the Feds rather than the thugs!

Thanks for helping me remind gun gnutters that they don't know the second amendment, including those they insist they know it "verbatim".

Because of a clause telling why the people have the right to keep and bear arms, you think it limits the right that also contains a clause prohibiting limitation? Talk about not seeing the Forrest for the trees.
A militia is still necessary to the security of a free state! That is why socialist liberal Democrats want so badly to infringe the second amendment. It is the last of the checks and balances set forth by our founders.
Your theory holds no water. The US established an Army in 1775. The second amendment was ratified in 1791, when Army and Militia were two distinctly different entities.
There is nothing in that clause about regulating those arms either son.

The militia is NOT necessary to the security of a free state and is NOT a check or balance against anything in particular.

That is right. The correct side.
Funny how liberals want to take one aspect of each subject to focus on.
With the second amendment, all liberals see is reference to a militia.
With gun crime, all they see is guns as the problem.
There are so many more aspects to both, but you are blind to them. I guess among liberals, tunnel vision is either contagious or a requirement.
lol! All cons want to focus on is "... shall not be infringed."

In my best estimation less than one percent of the news on Matts site is written by him or his staff......

99 percent of the news is from other news sources like CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS..........
