I have no idea if Charleston has a gun problem or not, but I was curious to see how many incidents would occur over the next year.
I do not claim that this list is comprehensive (it’s hard to find every single gun-related incident). If you know of a story that is missing, let me know.
If I saw a story about someone being shot – whether self-inflicted or not – it was added to this entry. I also provided the type of gun used (when that information was available).
You can draw your own conclusions from this list…
