Four Gun Laws have Drastically Reduced Suicide Rates

The lead author of a new study that found 4 gun laws have had a major impact on firearm suicide rates said, "When you make a highly lethal method of suicide harder to access, you’re going to lower the suicide rate.”

One example: In 11 states with waiting periods, a longer waiting period led to a lower gun suicide rate. Gun locks were also attributed to a 68% lower gun suicide rate. Gun safety laws save lives! Check out more from the study here:
