SAN ANTONIO — Service members who die by suicide are the most likely to use a gun, but a new study shows the right message from the right person — especially in law enforcement — can convince troops to secure their weapons safely and possibly save lives.
“What we found was that when the law enforcement officer was delivering the message, an overwhelming majority of servicemen said, ‘At home, I’m willing to use locking devices and things. like that. I’m much more likely to,” said Craig Bryan, an Ohio State University researcher and professor of psychiatry who led the study.
