    I'm sure that's not common. Why would you generally try to hide that fact that you're carrying?

    Tons of reasons. The first main one is for a courtesy to people who are squeamish around weapons, the second main one is tactical in case a person is not legally concealing and looking for a window of opportunity(such as an ambush during an armed robbery, I don't want to draw their eye and be the first target, I would rather they don't know I'm armed and focus on the money so that I can find my own window of opportunity to draw and defend).
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If you can't or refuse to access Wikipedia, here's the source for the data:

    Will you now claim the CDC isn't a reputable source but the FBI is?

    Oh...and BTW...in places like Japan where they outlawed guns (and criminals still illegally imported guns) their completed suicide rates are dramatically higher than the suicide rates in the US. They find ways, be it jumping from buildings, poisoning, overdose, etc.
    You're going to use Japan's suicide rate as a comparison?!?
