NYTimes Urges More Action To Prevent Suicides By Firearm

The New York Times (12/14, A22, Subscription Publication) editorializes, “As Americans debate how the country should respond to gun violence, they should not lose sight of the biggest category of firearm deaths: suicides.” Although “no policy or education campaign is going to prevent every suicide,” the Times argues that “that is no excuse for failing to save as many people as we can by improving gun safety and by protecting” those “who are a danger to themselves.”
