If someone is determined to kill themselves, then nothing will prevent it.

Even involuntary commitment eventually ends. If they still want to do so then they will.

But for many people, suicide is the convergence of desire and opportunity. Having a loaded handgun in easy reach when you are at your lowest point is a dangerous combination. Studies have shown that as high as 9 out of 10 survivors of a suicide attempt never try it again. Since most suicide attempts by gun are not survived, it makes it especially important to try and somehow avoid this Venn diagram overlap.
