Slate partners with @GunDeaths for an interactive, crowdsourced tally of the toll firearms have taken since Dec. 14.

The answer to the simple question in that headline is surprisingly hard to come by. So Slate and the Twitter feed @GunDeaths are collecting data for our crowdsourced interactive. This data is necessarily incomplete. 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 isnít represented here, please tweet @GunDeaths with a citation. (If youíre not on Twitter, you can email slatedata@gmail.com.) And if youíd like to use this data yourself for your own projects, itís open. You can download it here.

4. Curious

 

It sure is taking a while to get this guy's pizza. I wonder what the holdup is?

Doesn't DU have a "30 minutes or it's free!" delivery guarantee?

5. I'm no expert on RWNJ web sites but even I know Breitbart. Mostly from being involved in Occupy. !!

 

But seriously, my intent on posting this item is in regard to proportion. Four hundred deaths and society snores. It appears that we are inured to what appears to be nearly continuous gun death incidences. The NRA doesn't say a thing about them, but if something worse occurs, then suddenly all "mentally ill" people, regardless of degree or type or situation, must appear on a national registry.
