I worked as a firefighter for 25 years in a larger city known for its crime problems. I went to many suicides, and even more suicide attempts. It is a sad thing and especially devastating when it is a young person who has done it. A firearm is not the best and most sure way to kill yourself. People botch it up a lot of the time, even people who know a lot about guns and often end up suffering a great deal before they actually do die or end up living permanently screwed up.
