How to stop suicide and murder

ingersoll2
More guns = more death is simplistic logical fallacy… a false choice.
“in approximately 8 out of 10 cases, the perpetrator was not a lawful gun owner but rather in illegal possession of a weapon that belonged to someone else”

Correlations and causes are different beasts. .
The question is not how we eliminate guns, steering wheels, steak knives, drugs, ropes and explosives.  This misdirection misses the point and confuses the issue.  We can what is pointreduce suicides and homicides by addressing causes:
“The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), and their website also has an online chat feature. You can contact them anytime if you’re worried that you or someone you know may be in crisis.”
In America, militarized police have been given permission to murder at will, without accountability. And leaders at the helm export terror, munitions and unprovoked wars of aggression abroad. We must focus on root causes.
“Some people are so afraid they cannot find the courage to debunk the junk and face facts. And increasing numbers don’t want to know truths which may be too terrible to bear.”
Reality is not all it’s cracked up to be and some say life’s an illusion. Over time we peace2find small truths, big lies, radical science and brilliant ideas.
 
But so far war trumps peace, aggression spreads and myths abound. Too many live in personal fictions and find facts too great a burden to bear.
“Reality denied comes back to haunt.”
― Philip K. Dick,
