How gun shops are trying to reduce suicide by firearm


A first-of-its-kind statewide campaign is partnering with a unique sector to end suicide: gun owners in Ohio.

About 10 gun shops across the state have partnered with the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation (OSPF) to launch Life Side Ohio – a “groundbreaking” awareness campaign aimed at putting politics aside to curtail suicides by firearm, according to OSPF Executive Director Tony Coder.
