Illegal Gun Article Part II

Type of Gun

This is data for mass shootings. One thing about mass shootings is the type of gun used. I decided to look at what is the effect of mass shootings when you allow the sale of a semi-automatic rifle. Well, it appears that a rifle is used the same amount as a pistol in mass shootings, but the result is 33% more people killed. Even more crazy is that the amount of people injured goes up more than 8 times!
