    It certainly could be true. If you have a gun, you're more likely to SUCCESSFULLY commit suicide.

    Every story dude.
    I see Charles Hardy on there every now and then, but other than that, they're all a bunch of six year olds.

    silly...

    Doesn't Japan have some super high suicide rate... and I am pretty sure they almost all kill themselves by hanging... because they don't have any guns.

    If people want to kill, they will find ways...

    Yup, what ever is easiest at the time...

    And to explain the tent thing...
    When I worked at a sporting goods store a few years back, one of the guys I worked the counter with told me that one day he was going to take a shotgun off the rack, load it and walk out to the middle of the floor and blow his brains out... as I’m looking at him trying to deicide if he was serious or a sick joke, I turned and walked over to the camping section and got a tent off the shelf and handed it to him. As he was looking at me with a dumb look on his face asks: “what’s that for?” I told him, easy clean up.

    He got pretty mad at me for that :supergrin:
    The guy quit a little while after that, he had some issues and he was a real... well I can't think of a word that won't get blanked out

    You should have pretend-loaded a shotgun and handed it to him.
