[quote:Anonymous Coward 25613380:MV8yMDExNzU0XzMzOTkyNDk2XzcxOUM5NDU3] This suggests that those suicide statistics should be confirmed, those numbers could be a setup for this play. [/quote]
With nearly half of all suicides in the U.S. military committed with a privately owned firearm, Congress and the Pentagon are moving to implement policies that will discourage at-risk members of the armed forces from retaining their personal weapons.
As suicides continue to rise in 2012, the Defence Department officials are developing a suicide prevention campaign, part of which will encourage friends and family of the potentially suicidal to convince the soldiers to give up their weapons.
The Pentagon’s move would be hugely controversial as some lobbyists may construe it as gun control.
