Weekly reminder

As of September 20, at least 8,345 people had been killed by gunfire in the US since Newtown, at least 82 of them in Massachusetts.

And, as I like to remind you from time to time, this figure is only of media-reported deaths as thus is a minimum figure. Not all deaths get reported and deaths as suicide rarely are. Include those and, based on the most recent estimates by the Centers for Disease Control for yearly deaths by guns in the US, as of September 20 roughly 24,880 people have died from guns in the United States since Newtown.
