Gruesome News Story

A reminder that you don't need a gun to commit suicide. From August 30, 2011 WTKR in Virginia:
A man is dead after decapitating himself following a domestic dispute in Yorktown. ...
A Fire Dept. officer noticed a cable attached to a nearby tree and wrapped around the neck of the driver. When deputies tried to get the man to leave the Explorer, he rapidly accelerated the SUV and was pulled from the vehicle and decapitated.  
I never in a million years would have thought of ending it all in such a gruesome way.

This is further confirmation of what Ko-Ko (Gilbert and Sullivan's Lord High Executioner) said:

"...self-decapitation is an extremely difficult, not to say dangerous, thing to attempt..."

Does this mean the "gun grabbers" will now include cables, trees and Explorers in their ban list since they often cite suicide as a reason to ban guns?
