I commute by train everyday, and have been on several trains that people have jumped in front of. A gun might misfire - the bullet might take an odd trajectory and shoot out your eyeballs, leaving you blind and disfigured, but very much alive. But if you absolutely, positively want to end your own life, accept no substitutes - step in front of a speeding Metra train. A gun's got nothing on a locomotive traveling at 70 mph. It takes the cleanup crews about an hour to pick up all the chunks.
So I'm wondering when Direckshun will come out in favor of banning trains?
