Gun safety remains a public health crisis, as evidenced by several tragic school shootings and massacres involving high-powered, semiautomatic firearms. For individuals aged 15 to 34 years, suicide and homicide, often gun-related, rank as the second- and third-leading causes of death, respectively.5 Despite excess morbidity in adults aged 65 years or older, suicide ranks as the 16th leading cause of death.5 Older persons have 3 significant risk factors predisposing them to negative outcomes related to firearms: (1) the highest rates of gun ownership, (2) the highest rate of suicide, and (3) the greatest prevalence of depression.6
