Right now, if you head over to The Huffington Post, you’ll see their front page splash that looks like the image, above. Trying to prove a point, HuffPo is loading headlines from this week’s news stories of gun deaths from around the country.
The linked story is “U.S. Shooting Deaths Since Sandy Hook Top 100.”
Frankly, as stunning as it is, it’s actually not representative of the real magnitude: there are 34 gun deaths daily. That would mean, from Monday to Friday, 170 people died, on average.
This image isn’t even close. But it’s a good attempt to paint a picture.
We don’t have a gun problem?
