For Pokemon Fans: 3.5 stars For non-fans: 1.5 stars  Sunday is Pokemon Day in my household. My wife and I go to the park and play Pokemon Go until our phones run out of battery. We hit Pokestops to load up on balls. We catch dozens of Pokemon. We give gifts to our friends around the world. We take over gyms together and fill the newly conquered gyms with our favorite high-powered Pokemon (go Team Valor!). We meet strangers and go on Raids with them. Then we use our curveball skills to try to catch the Legendary Pokemon that we defeated together. Pokemon Go brings my wife and I closer together.

Regarding suicide by firearm: According to the Vermont Department of Mental Health, in 2016 there were 1,141 suicide attempts.  Of those, 1,070 or 94% were attempts using something other than a firearm. For those suicides where a firearm was used, the vast majority were done with a firearm that was already owned. It is actually a pretty rare event when a person wil…
