This article puts the findings of an article appearing in the same journal issue (AN 960131) into perspective and notes three North American studies which question whether tighter gun control laws would unequivocally reduce firearm suicides in the long run. It nevertheless suggests that there is enough research data to provide medical support for the introduction of more stringent firearm legislation in Australia with the aim of reducing suicide rates.
