    That article was not a 'public health' topic; I'm not claiming the term 'agent', in scientific papers, is never used in a neutral or positive sense - I'm saying the usage of 'agent' in a public health context is ordinarily as 'a bad thing to be controlled, minimized or eliminated'. Certainly that is how guns appear to be characterized in the paper we are discussing.

    Note that I am backing away from my earlier statement of 'uniformly' and 'foreign to the discipline'; I can imagine, say, DDT as an 'agent' to kill mosquitoes and thus control malaria, and 'agent' there would be a positive usage.

    All these stuff comes from folks who want to take guns away. After 20 years in the Ministry I have seen too many cases of Suicide but banning guns will not fix a thing. The root of suicidal thoughts is a sick mind. If the Fed would spend more money on accessible mental health care the problem would get fixed.
