One of them just DM’d me: “thank you for posting our voices.” Contrary to popular belief, there *are* people who want to talk to journalists after major tragedies, especially when they have a political message they want heard.

It's baffling to me that people are upset about this. 1. Facts matter. 2. The facts of school shootings are horrifying, and need no exaggeration. 3. Inflated stats give gun rights groups the opportunity to highlight faults in the data and undermine arguments for gun control.
