Gun Deaths since Sandy Hook


I have mentioned several times that Slate is keeping a running total of gun deaths since Sandy Hook, including the Sandy Hook deaths on 12/14/2013. These deaths do not include suicides. There have been 1774 deaths secondary to gun violence.

Here’s a recent story from the Denver Post:

Denver police officers were called to the home in the 4900 block of Pearl Street at 6:55 a.m. for reports of a shooting. Officials did not identify the people whom officers found dead inside, but relatives said they were Perez, 22; her daughter, Nevaeh Morales, 6; and son, Erick Perez, 2.

A third child, Isabel Perez, 3, underwent surgery at Denver Health Medical Center, where police Cmdr. Ronald Saunier said she was in “extremely critical condition.”

Finally, I really don’t have any comments on the Christopher Dorner story. It seems to be really crazy from start to finish.
