Sure it does. Every article about “gun deaths” either ignores that gun deaths are mostly suicides, or downplays it, because suicides don’t drive fear, and therefore don’t drive outrage traffic. The original version of the Vox article to which this article was a response presented three or four such graphs and did not include the word “Suicide” once.
