Firearms and Suicide Briefing

  • HC-5, US Capitol Building (map)

The Gun Violence Prevention Task Force invites staff for a briefing on the intersection of firearms and suicide.  Suicides account for approximately two-thirds of all gun deaths, resulting in 20,000 deaths a year.  Firearms are the most frequently used method of suicide.  There are interventions that work and can save lives. The briefing will explore current research, legislation, and proven prevention programs.
