Slate has a running total of all mass shooting victims since Newtown. 160 people have died, as of me posting right now.

Click through. Enjoy. And tell me this isn't an epidemic we have on our hands.
Ok, now if I cut and paste links to every single news article and blog post from around America about what happened on those days that was NOT a mass shooting... will you admit that maybe just maybe you are blowing it out of proportion just like a good little media consumer is expected to.
