These rates have climbed most steeply since 1999 among people between ages 45 and 64, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics. Combined, Minnesota's rate grew to 15 suicides per 100,000 residents.

In exactly half of US states, the suicide rate increased more than 30 percent.

A study published last week by the American Psychiatric Association evaluated red flag measures in CT and in and found those laws were associated with a 7.5 percent reduction in firearm suicides in the 10 years after their enactment.
