There have been several similar types of suicides across the state, several of them in the Orlando area and the most recent happened in Tamarac, a city west of Ft. Lauderdale in Broward Co.
The problem is that even through everyone who buys a gun must submit to a background check and waiting period; those who rent a gun do not.

First....you can rent a gun?!?
Second...it's the same concept as a seven day waiting period for a hand gun. I guess they figure if you have to wait a bit you may not kill yourself.
It sounds like a lot of bother to commit suicide. Why not just take some pills, slit your wrists, jump off a cliff, piss off some guy who already has a gun, etc. There are a million ways to kill yourself.

How exactly could a NICS check return a suicide probability? Eh, never-mind, people who propose and push for legislation never can explain how their legislation would accomplish a stated goal anyway so this shouldnt surprise me one bit.
