The New JPFO Store

Note - (June 2018) IMPORTANT: Our original JPFO store has ceased functioning due to a server code update that can no longer support it. We have a new store that is now set up which it is hoped will allow reasonable continuity -

Apologies for the recent store down time - thank you for your patience.

There may still be some teething issues and so if you need to contact us about that if problems, you can use our store backup contact form . which will send to our store email address. It is planned for old store links to redirect to relevant pages on new.

Prediction: More Guns, Less Suicide
During Current Administration

By Dean Weingarten. July 17th, 2018

On the chart, 0 is 0% 1 is 100%, 1 is 1 firearm per capita

There have been a number of recent opinion articles that attempted to create a linkage between firearms in society and the rate of suicides in society. The opinion articles contain explicit calls for more regulation of firearms, even though most of the policy prescriptions would have no effect on suicides.

Banning or restriction semi-automatic firearms? Suicides only need a single shot.

Banning or restricting magazine capacity? Suicides only need one shot. Magazines are superfluous to suicide.

Reducing the age of sale for semi-automatic rifles? The same lack of logic applies.

The general argument that more guns result in more suicides is false. .......

Despite the continued trend towards increased gun ownership, suicides would appear to be decreasing. Two factors seem to be in play - one is that with much greater support currently for the military and vets, there is an improvement in optimism and less suicide-inducing depression. Secondly, despite the anti-gun lobby always wanting to blame firearms for suicides, drug overdose is but one unfortunate possible alternative.
