Cayman, 13

"Cayman was a really, really happy kid. He wasn't being bullied at school. He had no real girl problems. He had a happy family. There were absolutely no warning signs. He got an email about a homework assignment and probably 20 to 30 minutes later, my 13-year-old son took his life with a gun I hadn't thought about in years."

Farid, Cayman's father

This emotional video captures Farid Naib as he shares the story of his son's 2015 suicide. Minutes after receiving an upsetting email from his school, Cayman shot himself with a gun his father bought years before for home defense. Naib believe that if there hadn’t been a gun in their home, Cayman would still be alive.

Cayman's Story complements a September, 2015 Brady Center report highlighting the truth about suicide and guns. The report finds that while gun ownership alone presents the greatest risk, when combined with the impulsive nature of suicide and the effectiveness of a gun, the combination is deadly.
