"And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need." Beyond the misstatement of fact about the type of weapon is the whole idea of "Some" random kids having something they didn't need. Instead of treating this as a determined act of violence perpetrated by criminals, it's played as innocent children who just got into Daddy's stash and committed an 'Ooopsie". How denigrating to the citizens of Chicago who are in real danger from real criminals by making the gun used the object of blame rather than the societal breakdown and lack of law enforcement against very bad people who don't care how they kill you.
