Kids & Guns

L. Craig Parker:
"Japan outlaws handguns and rifles and makes shotguns extremely difficult to obtain. Yet teenage suicide is 30% more frequent in Japan than in America." The Japanese Police System Today: An American Perspective, P. 149.
"While teenage suicide has remained stable in the U.S. in the last 15 years, teenage suicide has risen sharply in Europe, where gun control is much stricter.", "Teenage deaths increasing Across Europe", CJ International, Nov-Dec 1991, p. 4.
