Abstract

[Extract] In their study entitled, "Wounding patterns based on firearm type in civilian public mass shootings in the United States," the authors concluded that "civilian public mass shooting events with a handgun are more lethal than those associated with the use of a rifle." This conclusion is not supported by the results reported by the authors or by previously published literature on this topic.
