Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

America’s biggest gun problem is the one we never talk about

There is a gun for nearly every person in America. The overwhelming majority of people who die from guns in the US do not die because someone shot them — they die because they shot themselves.
 Guns killed 33,636 people in the United States in 2013. But while homicides and mass shootings dominate the headlines, nearly two-thirds of those deaths — 21,175 — were suicides. That's the real gun problem in the US, and we barely ever talk about it.

Another public health truth update for the doubters.

Guns, cars and money bring out the worst in people.
