Ahead of the State of the Union address – call Congress about gun violence.

Update, 2/12/13: As of 9:14 CST this morning, the tally stands at 1,771 dead.

Update: As of 3:52 pm CST, the tally stands at 1,747 dead.

When I first glanced at Slate’s gun death tally this morning [Monday], about two hours before typing these words, 1,686 Americans had been fatally shot since Newtown; two hours later, that number stands at 1,695.

The President is bound to talk, possibly at length, about gun violence during Tuesday’s State of the Union address. If you haven’t called/emailed Congress and the White House yet about good gun laws and good policies, please please — do so.
