Death Toll | Media reported gun violence since Newtown

In the seven months since the slaughter at Newtown, Connecticut, the gun deaths of about 6,170 Americans have been reported in the media.

This does not for the most part reflect suicides which account for around 60% of US gun fatalities.

Federal legislation to restore and extend previously effective firearm regulations is stalled in Congress.

If this stalling doesn't bother you, no action is required unless the death toll reaches a number—or includes a name—that gets your attention.

If the stalling does bother you, you can tell your members of the US Senate and House of Representatives you want them to #makegunviolenceharder.
