Unclear Sentence and Incorrect Number in Figure

JAMA. 2018;320(20):2154. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.18424

The Research Letter entitled “Lethality of Civilian Active Shooter Incidents With and Without Semiautomatic Rifles in the United States,”1 published in the September 11, 2018, issue of JAMA, contained an unclear sentence. The second sentence should have been worded as follows: “Many weapons were banned in 1994 under the federal assault weapons ban but were reintroduced to the public marketplace in 2004.” In addition, the Figure should have reported the number of active shooter incidents with a semiautomatic rifle as n = 61. This article was corrected online.
