Mass shooting Saturday night at fair in Georgia

At the #GunCrisis Reporting Project, we spend a considerable amount of time sifting through local news reports from around the U.S., in an attempt to understand why issues and incidents — such as mass shootings — emerge in the national headlines in some cases but not others. On Saturday night for instance, six teens were among seven people shot at the Coastal Empire Fair Savannah, Georgia.
