People dying from suicides is not an inflated number it s people dying due to easy access of guns.
But it is completely disingenuous to consider it a gun crime. Well, I guess maybe not if you are willing to consider someone contracting aids from a random hookup and dieing as a homicide too.
Last I checked, it was not a crime to kill yourself. It was only illegal if you break the law in the process. Counting suicides by gun as gun crimes is nothing more then an attempt to exaggerate the numbers. It's misleading, false, and dishonest.
