We have to watch suicide prevention videos every damn day. They do quite the opposite.
this may also be a reason you dont see much gun violence there. The mentality about guns is different. The laws, respect, and training is all so different. Like in canada. If you get caught with a hand gun its jail time...no if ands or buts.
"To carry firearms in public or outdoors (and for an individual who is a member of the militia carrying a firearm other than his Army-issue personal weapons off-duty), a person must have a Waffentragschein (gun carrying permit), which in most cases is issued only to private citizens working in occupations such as security."
