Mass Shooting Data Visualizations Around the Web

Aleszu Bajak, Storybench: President Obama issued a rare challenge to news organizations last week when he responded to last week’s mass shooting in Oregon by asking them to do some data homework: “Tally up the number of Americans who’ve been killed through terrorist attacks over the last decade and the number of Americans who’ve been killed by gun violence and post those side by side on your news reports.” …But Storybench decided to publish a roundup of visualizations that have gone above and beyond what Obama requested. (Herein) are several visualizations produced by news organizations and researchers that combine great design and visualization with good old fashioned shoe-leather reporting that bring home the toll of gun violence in America.”
