Suicides a Major Part of Firearm Deaths

PositiveTips

Mass shootings capture our attention via the media. They are terrible events and we hate to see the senseless suffering. Most may not be aware that there are 88 deaths each day in the U.S. due to firearm injuries. In rural areas suicides were the major cause of these deaths, and in the cities homicide.

PositiveTip: Alcohol and substance abuse combined with isolation and the ready availability of a gun can be a deadly mixture.
