"During his regular Friday morning radio appearance today, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said New York City's relatively low suicide rate can be attributed in part to the city's relatively strict gun-control laws."

"'The rate of suicide in New York City is almost half of what it is in the country on average,' he said. "And most of that comes from the difficulty in getting a gun.'" ...

KABA Note: Mike, you're either a moron or a liar. Japan which has 0.6 firearms per 100 people (as opposed to the U.S.'s 88) had a suicide rate of 24.4 per 100,000 in 2009 (as opposed to our 11 and your city's 6). Russia had a 2009 suicide rate of 30.1 and gun ownership rate of 8.9 per 100 people.
There is not even any correlation, much less causation.

What a doofus. So criminals can get guns easy, but people who want to commit suicide can't?
