Reality check: using newspapers, police report, and court records to assess defensive gun use

The above paper was published in the April issue (Inj Prev 2004;10:96–98) and the authors would like to correct some minor errors. In the second paragraph of the discussion the authors stated “The newspaper reported two such homicides (both by security guards, one off-duty and the other on-duty)”; this should have read “…one such homicide…”. In the abstract and key points where it states that there were two DGUs [defensive gun uses] involving killing assailants it should read “Two DGUs involving killing or wounding assailants”.
