Remember: This is not a poll for "Is a gun the best tool for the job when committing suicide?" We all know that's true. The question is asking about the total number. If there were fewer guns, would there be fewer attempts at suicide? Yes or no?

Easily the most depressing and influential statistic that Montana gun owners ever contend with in the discussion over more gun control is related to firearms attainability in Montana and successful suicides. How do we as gun owners help justify gun ownership when so many of our friends, family members and neighbors are taken from us with the simple squeeze of a trigger and we have a lot more triggers?

It’s simple and may seem insensitive, but where there’s a will, there’s a way and that’s the way most of us grew up. We all know that someone who is determined to do something will find a way to do it. As insensitive as this may sound, suicide by firearm is common sense at work. Use the best tool for the job.

I think you need to look at the math. And then act accordingly. Last year a family member started acting depressed and suicidal. At that point all our firearms that were not in a safe, had trigger locks placed on them. Don’t know if a tragedy was prevented by these actions, but it just made sense.
