    They had a lot of statistics and, rightfully IMO, decided that they weren't conclusive.

    I found 2 items of specific interest: They made the point that there would be fewer suicides if guns weren't available because some potential suicides are spur-of-the-moment and the thought tends to leave just a quickly.

    They also left out the statistic that shows that something like 12 people on average are killed when intervention is delayed until LE arrives, and plummets to around 2 when one of the potential victims is armed, which, IMO, IS conclusive.
