    BTW, gun crime, and gun thefts, are both up in Australia the past couple of years. Similar to Canada.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    The total suicide expressed as a rate per 100,000 population is falling faster than the simple count, so it's not "higher than it's ever been".

    Also, instead of using a firearm people resorted to hanging.

    It's sad either way you slice it.

    Excellent news, didn't account for our population booming
