Guns don’t kill people: they just make it a lot easier to do so

The United States is the only country in the world where the primary means of suicide is guns. More Americans kill themselves with guns than are murdered with them every year in the United States. The ten states with the weakest gun-control laws have a suicide rate twice that of the ten states with the strongest laws.

— Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon
