    The link above will take you directly to the story.

    The antigun democrats constantly repeat the supposed fact that 90% of the illegal guns in Mexico were imported from the United States. This is a lie. The real number is less than 17%. Of course we will see public retractions from the politicians who originally offered up the 90% number (I am not holding my breath).

    The damage is done. The public has already heard the puke version, and it is accepted as fact. Any debunking has to be done loud and long to have any effect at all.

    Too Bad.

    Hillary Clinton was quick to blame it on American guns. I wrote a previous thread questioning "Where's the proof" but it wasn't there. Guns can be traced and you would think there would be some factual information on this issue, but the usual anti-gun retoric appears and is passed along as fact. The media, of course, won't question the statements made by these Einsteins which is a great disservice to all of us. Yes, we have a demand for drugs but to blame violence on guns (alleged American guns) serves the politicians' agendas. BT-100dc

    Those darn gun shows... surprised the guns shows haven't been tied to the proliferation of american guns in Mexico.

    As for retractions, what politician would ever be honest? Besides, what they are doing keeps working. Folks that have no business in leadership keep getting elected. It is too bad so many folks would rather close their ears and wear the rose colored glasses the politicians offer than face reality and take control of their lives.
