Obama’s continued use of the claim that 40 percent of gun sales lack background checks - The Washington Post:
MPR is using the 40% number regularly today and Al Franken used it on the Senate floor last night. It is NOT correct!! I sent e-mail to both MPR and Franken's office today. I suspect they don't care -- if the number was "as many as 5% of gun purchases" (as close to the correct number as we can get today unless an unbiased study is done), the vote in the Senate against further legislation would have ben 70-80 against!
