Counselors from Northeastern Counseling Center, in the northeast Utah community of Roosevelt, are more pointed. They have a table at a local gun-and-knife show to give out safety goodies meant to slow someone considering suicide in a moment of crisis: cable locks and gun socks with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number printed on them, Neumann reports. As they hand out the swag, they strike up conversations. One counselor, Robin Hatch, told an attendee: "Lethal access to lethal means makes a difference. Suicide attempts by any other means are less lethal."
