The conversation around gun violence in the U.S. tends to focus on homicides, especially in the context of mass shootings and school shootings. But nearly two-thirds of all gun deaths in the U.S. are suicides: an average of 59 deaths a day. And the problem is only getting worse: over the past decade, the U.S. firearm suicide rate has increased by 19 percent. Addressing firearm suicide is an essential element of any strategy to reduce suicide and gun violence in this country. Use this Suicide Report to bring awareness to the gravity of the situation.
