    AP article about bogus "background check" numbers

    Finally, someone in the mainstream media is onto the bogus numbers that all the antis have been using for gun sales without background checks:

    Gun control debate deals in mold stats: Fact Check | OregonLive.com

    "The statistic is ubiquitous these days and cited as gospel by a variety of public figures and gun-control advocates, President Barack Obama among them, but it is 20 years old and was not much more than an educated guess at the time."

    "Only 4 percent of gun sales were thought to have come through gun shows or flea markets a corner of the market that is a top concern today for those who want to expand background checks to close the "gun-show loophole," as Obama's proposals would do."

    Glad to see at least one of the MSM outlets had the guts to write a straight up story & not the usual quote from one liberal anti-gun source to the next.

    Good on 'em! It's about time we saw a repudiation of the so-called "gun show loophole" statistics. What took so long???
