    According to the dictionary, one definition of "victim" is such:

    4. A person who suffers injury, loss, or death as a result of a voluntary undertaking:

    It's the English language. Learn its proper use.
    Even though it is a technically correct use of the word "victim", there is also an implied meaning. And I agree that the implied meaning of victim, does not fit a suicide.

    So if it's technically correct, then it is correct and no other argument suffices. Thanks.

    "The shooting range has also adopted a new policy. Anyone who comes in alone -- like all three victims did -- is required to provide the phone number of a friend, parent or spouse.

    "We're going to call them and say, 'Is "John" in a good state to be shooting guns?'" Wallin says. "

    And no one here is kibbitzing about this???

    I feel sorry for the suicides, and sorry for the range. But calling my mommy (who is dead and buried), or my ex-husband, or my boss (anti-gun) or a friend (who probably wouldn't know the state of my mind at the time anyway) - is not likely to help the situation.

    My niece called my brother (her father) the same day she committed suicide -- and he couldn't tell anything was wrong.

    A counselor told them (and it seems to be true) that once someone has made up their mind to do it, they're calm and controlled on the outside. You can't tell.

    It has happened here in Delray twice. Recently too.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    this is only going to get worst. there is a palpable sense of desperation with people out there. 5 bucks for the gun rental + 15-20 bucks for ammo = bullet in the brain w/c is a high likelihood to end your problems one way or the other.
