Gun-death tally: Every American gun death since Newtown Sandy Hook shooting (INTERACTIVE)
The answer to the simple question in that headline is surprisingly hard to come by. So Slate is collecting data for our crowdsourced interactive. This data is necessarily incomplete (click here to see why, and to learn more about @GunDeaths, the Twitter user who helped us create this interactive). But the more people who are paying attention, the better the data will be. You can help us draw a more complete picture of gun violence in America. If you know about a gun death in your community that isn’t represented here, please email a link to a news report to firstname.lastname@example.org. Update, Dec. 31, 2013: After a year of gun deaths, Slate is retiring this project.
