And that number is bound to grow. Slate's Chris Kirk and Dan Kois have put together this graph showing all the deaths reported in the United States due to gun violence. And the data, they note, is far from being complete.

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 isn?t represented here, please tweet @GunDeaths with a citation.
