US Gun Deaths 2004-2010

Interesting interactive map showing gun deaths in the US. The map is based on data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and shows the average number of gun deaths per 100,000 county residents from 2004 through 2010.

Note that the “gun deaths” map combines homicides, suicides, and accidents.  There are also separate maps for suicides and homicides.  Suicides really skew the statistics.

Thanks to Barry Waite of the City of Carson for finding this one.
