Bill Radke speaks with Jennifer Stuber, an associate professor at the University of Washington and co-founder of Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention. February 16 is Suicide Prevention Education Day and Stuber has worked with the Washington legislature to try and craft bills to help prevent suicide, especially those committed with guns. She discusses an unlikely alliance with the NRA and how she wants to erase the stigmas around suicide.
