Gun Violence Data

After digging around the internet looking for data on gun violence for a few minutes,  I found Gun Violence Archive which has a ton of great information on gun violence in the US. You can search for incidents by date, location, age of victim, kind of gun, and much more.  On top of that, you can download CSV files directly from the website.

Here’s what I made with 32 days worth of data:

It is hard to fathom that 1,308 people were shot and killed in the last 32 days (not including deaths by suicide) but there you have it.
