With mass walkouts at Deadspin and mass layoffs at Sports Illustrated, what's happening to sports journalism?

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
According to a recent Gallup poll, 30 percent of U.S. adults say they own a firearm. And according to the Pew Research Center, three-fourths of those gun owners bought their firearms for self-defense.
But researchers at Harvard recently found that people defended themselves with their guns in less than one percent of violent crimes.

And what is it like to be part of that less-than-one-percent? We explore the issue with the reporting collaborative Guns & America.
