Suicides are at an all time high in the military. 1/2 of them are committed with a gun. And YES Congress has a plan to fix it!
Take away privately owned firearms from soldiers, that way they CANNOT possibly commit suicide.
"[LEFT]The new amendment, part of the defense authorization bill for 2013 that has passed in the [/LEFT]House of Representatives[LEFT] but not in the Senate, would allow mental health professionals and commanders to ask service members about their personal firearms if they have “reasonable grounds” to believe the person is at “high risk” of committing suicide or harming others.

I can ONLY assume that the other half of the suicides will lead to cars, pills and who knows what else to be confiscated.
Guess it will be IMPOSSIBLE for anyone who wants to commit suicide to do so, don’cha just love the govt?[LEFT][/LEFT]
