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?
