There’s this paragraph: “The data reveal that while semi-automatic rifles are only used in a minority of active shooter incidents (24.6 percent), those attacks result in almost twice as many people being wounded or killed compared to shootings that don’t involve semi-automatic firearms” I quibble with the author switching from “semi-automatic rifles” to “semi-automatic firearms” in the same sentence.
