Suicide by firearms are often overlooked by press media, they mostly focus on mass shootings. Suicide by a gun has a 96.5% success rate which is higher than anything else. There is about 1 gun for every person in America. We have 3 times as much guns than Canada. People who have access to guns have a higher suicide rate.
From the picture you can see a massive difference between the United States and the rest of the world. Homicides don't beat the deaths of suicide. Literally almost doubled with the suicide rate. On behalf why other countries have lower rates than America is because of their gun restrictions.
Studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that approximately half of all suicides are from firearm. Suicide from guns result in death 82.5 percent of the time. Which is more deadly than anything else. The NRA states that guns should be only used for protection safe, but doesn't get to the minds of people with firearms in their houses as they may be thinking about shooting themselves.
More than 60 percent of Americans who die from guns die by suicide, but no one really pays attention to that. There are more gun suicide deaths than there are gun homicides. Gun suicides are a huge problem in the United States. Across all the ages it is the 10th-most common cause of death though they aren't all gun suicide, but a majority are.
