Guns And Suicide

AIR DATE: January 7, 2014

Nevada has the fourth-highest suicide rate in the nation, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. And more than half of those who kill themselves in Nevada use a gun to end their lives. So the Nevada Office of Suicide Prevention is working with a new ally – gun stores and retailers – to educate sellers on the dangers guns can pose to those struggling with suicidal thoughts.  What can gun dealers do to educate their customers and keep guns away from the suicidal?

Crisis Call Center: 1-800-273-8255

GUESTS

Richard Egan, facilitator, Nevada Office of Suicide Prevention

Mark Cole, gun seller, Nevada Firearms Coalition
