Given the fact that “Roughly two-thirds of gun deaths are suicides,” please tell me what percentage of those were committed with the OWNER’S firearm and what percentage were committed with someone ELSE’S firearm? In particular, I would like it broken down thusly:
Suicide committed with the OWNER’S firearm: X%
Suicide committed with someone ELSE’S firearm: Y%
– firearm owned by an IMMEDIATE family member: A%
– firearm owned by an EXTENDED family member: B%
– firearm owned by a friend, acquaintance, or their immediate or extended family: C%
– firearm owned by someone unknown to the suicide victim: D%
Such that: X%+Y%=100%
Such that: A%+B%+C%+D%=Y%
This information is VITAL in determining both IF and WHAT might be done to mitigate the issue.
If you’re incapable of properly formulating the question, you can NOT answer it as a journalist.
