Are you interested in how many Americans are killed by people with guns? Until recently, the numbers were surprisingly hard to come by. But now you can see the total number - currently 2453 since the Newtown massacre - via this infographic from Slate.
You can click on each figure in the graphic to find out the source of the reported death, usually a local news website.
Slate is partnering with anonymous Twitter user @GunDeaths, who started collecting the data in summer 2012. As he explains, his aim is to tweet "every gun death in North America regardless of cause and without comment." He invites Americans to tweet him reports of gun deaths to "help us tell the story behind the statistics."
