Your Daily Gun Report

UPDATE:  Boy, 3, shoots himself in head and dies, in gun-crazed South Carolina, after finding gun in house that he thought was a toy. 

Earlier:  For weeks I have been bringing you highlights, or rather lowlights, of gun tragedies in the USA.  According to Slate’s gun-death tracker, there have been 1,619 gun murders since the Newtown massacre on December 14, 2012.  Just yesterday I reported on a man killing his wife and two pre-teen kids before offing himself.  Now today:  man in California shoots and kills his two teenage kids, then himself (he was estranged from his wife, which I guess saved her).

But Joe Nocera at the NYT has been doing his own roundup daily.  Today he actually found a case of an intruder being stopped by folks with access to handguns.  Otherwise the usual:  accidental shootings, murders, murder-suicides.   Check it out daily.
