Footnotes:
1) Injuries could be caused by either the firearm being fired or used as a blunt instrument.
2) The introduction of the NCRS in April 2002 means that data prior to this date are not directly comparable with later figures. See Box 2.1 for more details.
3) Fatal injury includes the 12 people killed by Derrick Bird on 2 June 2010.
4) A serious injury is one which requires a stay in hospital or involves fractures, concussion, severe general shock, penetration by a bullet or multiple shot wounds.
5) GunPolicy.org calculation of the number of non-fatal injuries.
