Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund released a new report on September 29, 2023, highlighting the impact of state gun laws over a 20 year span in preventing firearm suicide. The report, entitled “Two Decades of Suicide Prevention Laws: Lessons from National Leaders on Gun Safety Policy,” shows that from 1999 to 2022, rates of firearm suicide have gone down in those states designated as national leaders in gun violence prevention policies. Meanwhile, firearm suicide rates have gone up 39% among states designated as “national failures” on gun safety policy. The report found that strong gun laws, including those that restrict access to guns for individuals in crisis, have not resulted in increases in suicide using other methods.
