The lefties (like Laredo) and squishy Republicans (like Herstram) will not change their stripes. However, like you, I am amazed that the Republic and the Star corrected this old myth. Unfortunately, they have repeated the lie so many times for so long (because the lie fits their narrative), it will be difficult, if not impossible, now to have any impact. You know the old story, a lie goes half-way around the world before the truth gets its shoes on. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.

The story finally, in the minds of the editor, became too big to ignore. To continue to do so would make the newspaper look even more irrelevant. Or, as the old saying goes,"even a broken clock is right twice a day".

Actually the percentage has risen... thanks to the Fast and Furious fiasco :/

But please also realize that this statistical blip is the fault of the supporters of the rabid anti-gun movement in Washington DC!
