Do not personalize your arguments in this fashion. If you feel you must, the Pit is right around the corner.

As we conclude later in the report, although there is some evidence that the 1996 agreement reduced firearm suicides in Australia, studies also found significant reductions in nonfirearm suicides at the same time, calling into question whether the reductions in firearm and nonfirearm suicides were caused by the new law or some other concurrent events.
I know. I read that, then summarised that point in the post you quoted. Go back again, read what I said my cite said, and ask yourself why you rushed in to say that experts differ on Australian gun laws and suicide and who you thought they were differing from.

I am not in disagreement. Why do you think I am?

No, no, not at all. You're just helpfully quoting back to me excerpts of my own cite, the clear gist of which I'd already summarised in the thread. And bless you for it.
