Online PR News – 02-July-2014 – Taylorsville – GROVELAND, Florida (June 29, 2014) – "On Friday, [url=]San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge Board of Directors[/url] unanimously approved $76 million in funding to erect a 20-foot-wide steel net -- extending out from each side of the 1.7-mile span -- to deter would-be jumpers. The federal government will cover $50 million of the cost; the rest will come from state and local sources", Stephanie Smith of CNN writes.

"There is a dark duality about the Golden Gate Bridge. Majestic and macabre, the bridge is an architectural wonder that also happens to be a magnet for suicides. It is the most-used suicide spot in the United States, second in the world. The decision to move forward with the Golden Gate plan punctuates a contentious fight that has simmered here for decades", she adds.

One of the main reasons suicide attempts have been rampant these days would be the dissatisfaction these people feel about their lives. Most of the reasons behind this would be financial problems or loss of a relative, resulting from theft and other crimes by other people. Sure enough, these days call for active measures in every citizen, with more and more people meeting with gun dealers who can provide them with the means to protect themselves against such crimes.

Some of these people even ask for the best gun shooting clubs that provide memberships – at a reasonable price – and enable them to interact with fellow concerned citizens who want nothing than be able to have the skill in guns needed to help protect and secure themselves and their families, if ever it comes down to it.
Due to the increased awareness of people that they need to be able to protect themselves, there has been quite the increase in the demand for [url=]target shooting ranges where they can practice their shooting skills[/url]. These shooting ranges even have some moving targets that can further improve anyone's marksmanship skills, with the right supervision and time invested in training.

"Last year, 46 people died after jumping off the Golden Gate, according to the Bridge Rail Foundation, an organization dedicated to stopping suicides from the bridge. The organization estimates that more than 1,600 people have leapt to their deaths since the bridge opened in 1937. An artist's rendering from the proposal shows a horizontal barrier that extends from the deck, beneath the roadway, and doesn't clash with the bridge's unique International Orange hue", she finishes.
