When the Israeli Army started requiring soldiers to keep their weapons in a garrison instead of taking them home, suicides fell -- and they stayed down.
Maybe this brief, temporary state of depression could happen to you, or your beloved teenage son. So there's no doubt that America's 300 million guns lead to more "success" in suicides.

Yes, between ages 1 and 4, drowning is the leading cause of violet death ... but it's fairly low -- about 500 per year. Between ages 15-24, guns kill over 5,000 people a year.
Overall, drowning is the 10th leading cause of injury death in America, while guns are the 3rd leading cause.

And yes, I would think before you shoot an intruder you'd want to at least see them first to make sure it was an intruder. If you hear noise coming from somewhere your first instinct shouldn't be to shoot and then ask questions later.

j/k. AFAIK, at least in CA, that law only applies to *new* pool construction. And my point doesn't change just because there's a law in place for new pools. If there's no pool fence at a house, my kids aren't going to be going over there unless I'm with them the entire time.

Obviously I don't know all the facts. The weird part about it to me is: if you really want to kill someone, shooting through a bathroom door doesn't seem like the most effective way to do it.
But it's quite possible Pistorius wasn't thinking straight; could be drug or alcohol related.
EDIT to add: here's a Slate article on the testosterone / steroid debate/retraction from today:
It's hasty to call them "steroids", it seems. But it still may be testosterone.

Man they bungled this case badly.

"box of testosterone" sounds like it was literally a box with "testosterone" written on the side like government "CHEESE"

And of course this is insignificant compared to the recent events at his apartment...
